In-Person Black Oystercatcher Community Science Training

Black Oystercatchers are a striking and easily recognizable bird in which we share our coast. It is also a species of conservation concern because of its small population size and vulnerability to a variety of impacts. Our work with this bird is helping in or efforts to protect rocky shoreline habitats. Learn more about the Black Oystercatcher Project.

If you would like to learn more about this amazing bird and are interested in helping with Portland Audubon’s community science effort to monitor oystercatchers on the coast, consider attending this training. The training will cover Black Oystercatcher life history, conservation challenges they face, and instructions on how to participate in our nest monitoring program.

Our in-person training this year is: May 7 / 10 a.m.-2 p.m. at Cannon Beach City Hall

Interested volunteers can RSVP by emailing Allison at aanholt@audubonportland.org
