Birds 'n' Bogs Community Science Project
To volunteer, email Arin Underwood at firstname.lastname@example.org
In the spring of 2013, Audubon Alaska and the Geography and Environmental Studies Department at the University of Alaska Anchorage started a community science program called “Birds ‘n’ Bogs.” This community science program represents an important effort because boreal wetland birds are among North America’s most rapidly declining birds.
The goal of Birds 'n' Bogs is to document distribution of boreal birds—primarily Lesser Yellowlegs, Greater Yellowlegs, Solitary Sandpiper, Rusty Blackbirds, Olive-Sided Flycatchers, Tree Swallows, and Violet-Green Swallows —in wetland habitats of Anchorage and the Matanuska Valley.
For further details on this program and to view survey times and protocols, visit the Birds 'n' Bogs website for the Alaska Department of Fish and Game.
