Join Candace Larson, Portland Audubon Field Biologist, for an orientation/training on a brand new Community Science project in a beautiful greenspace next to Rock Creek Community College.

Help us understand how birds are responding to habitat restoration efforts as you bird along a trail. The goal of this project is to collect baseline information on the bird communities that use this greenspace as Clean Water Services implements a long-term floodplain enhancement project at this site.  This project aims to maintain a healthy Rock Creek watershed while also providing quality wildlife habitat and connectivity.  

Portland Audubon has developed an easy-to-follow protocol for birders to collect key bird data to inform this effort. 

Volunteer requirements:

  • Birding skills: Must be able to identify Pacific Northwest birds by sight and sound; must be comfortable using eBird. Less experienced volunteers can record data for the bird counter.  
  • Equipment: Must have your own binoculars. 
  • Field conditions: Must be able to walk 1-2 miles on paved and dirt paths.
  • Transportation and Parking at the site is your responsibility

Get Involved

Please contact Candace Larson (clarson@audubonportland.org) to RSVP for the training and either Candace or Joe Liebezeit (jliebezeit@audubonportland.org) for any other questions about the project.
