Virtual Snowy Plover Patrol Training – April 9 & 10, 2022
We will be hosting online webinars for the classroom portion of the Snowy Plover training. This series will be presented twice, on Friday/Saturday April 1 and 2 then Saturday/Sunday April 9 and 10. It will be broken into four modules. They cover all relevant topics needed to understand snowy plovers and what we can do to help them.
Portland Audubon is partnering with Oregon Parks and Recreation Department and the Institute for Natural Resources to monitor endangered western Snowy Plovers at four sites on the North Coast (from Clatsop Spit in Astoria to Sitka Sedge beach near Pacific City) starting in April and continuing through the summer. We are looking for folks to perform surveys twice a month but can do fewer if needed. Surveys will take 2-4 hours (depending on the site). Some sites will require a fair amount of walking on sandy beach habitat. Learn more about the Snowy Plover Patrol.
