The John James Audubon Center at Mill Grove & Valley Forge Audubon Society is excited to partner with Elmwood Park Zoo on Audubon’s Climate Watch, a community science program that explores how North American birds are responding to climate change!

Come to a FREE training session to learn how to play a role in helping birds around the continent!

Join us to learn how to collect data that will validate the current projections of Audubon’s climate models. Once trained on how to use our bird watching protocols to count bluebirds and nuthatches, you can get started any day between January 15th and February 15th!

Training dates and locations are as follows:
January 3rd : 6:00-7:30pm @ Elmwood Park Zoo
January 7th : 6:00-7:30pm @ John James Audubon Center at Mill Grove  in Audubon, PA

***Please email Erin Rackovan, our Climate Watch Coordinator, at erackovan@elmwoodparkzoo.org for more information or to register.

Not a birder? Not a problem! ALL ARE WELCOME!

 

In 2014, Audubon released the Audubon Birds and Climate Change report highlighting the risks that climate change poses to birds across North America. In response, thousands of people asked how they could help make the world a better place for birds. Since the program’s launch in 2016, hundreds of dedicated Climate Watch volunteers have traversed habitats across the U.S. to look for bluebirds and nuthatches, our two target species.
