Winter Grassland Bird Surveys - Volunteer Orientation

Sunday, November 1st, 2020 from 3:00pm to 5:00pm (CT)


The City of Austin Park Rangers are planning to continue our annual wintering grassland bird surveys at Louis Rene Barrera Indiangrass Wildlife Sanctuary! This orientation is for new participants to acquaint themselves with the site, the survey protocols, and expectations.

By registering for this event, you are also signing up for the surveys themselves; these will involve substantial hiking over uneven ground, physical exertion (beating the grass), and (hopefully) bird identification. Unfortunately, given current restrictions on gatherings in Austin, we cannot promise that every participant in the orientation will have the opportunity to take part all three surveys, but we will make every effort to ensure that everyone gets the chance!

This orientation is remote; a link will be provided closer to the date. Please provide a good email address to which we can send this link when you register.

Hi everyone, I sent out an email reminding you of today's meeting but I'm going to add it to the wall as well in case it doesn't make it past your spam filter. It's at 3:00 PM and I will try to record it in case anyone is unable to make it. See below for the link. Hope to see you this afternoon and thanks!
