Black Oystercatcher Monitoring Training

May042019

When: May 04, 2019 from 10:00 am to 12:00 pm

Where: USFWS Newport Office Meeting Room (2127 SE Marine Science Drive, Newport).

Black Oystercatchers are a striking and easily recognizable bird we share our coast with. 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. 

If you would like to learn more about this amazing bird and are interested in helping with Audubon Portland'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 abundance and nest monitoring program. Light refreshments will be served.
