About this Project
By taking part in this community science project, you’ll 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.
- 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
