Climate Watch: Monitoring Changes in Bird Populations

April 20 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm

Free
eastern bluebird

Dunes-Calumet Audubon President Kim Ehn will discuss how National Audubon’s Climate Watch Surveys allow birders to record birds seen and heard at specific locations and enter that data through eBird for researches to use in tracking vulnerability and status of bird species. She will also explain how to navigate eBird to submit your own sightings and explore different locations.

Kim Ehn is currently President of Dunes-Calumet Audubon Society, a chapter of National Audubon Society. She has been helping with Northern Saw-whet Owl banding since 2010, including 4 years as a Lead Bander. As an experienced birder, Kim leads field trips for the Indiana Dunes Birding Festival, and directs the Festival’s Youth & Family Day as a collaboration of Indiana Audubon Society and the Indiana Dunes State Park.

 

Our virtual space is limited. Please, register only for the number of connections you will need to access the Zoom meeting, rather than the number of people who will attend on your device. We will stream the event live to Facebook if the Zoom meeting fills.
