You don't have to be an expert - novices are welcome and you can improve your birding skills while helping with the surveys.
Bird surveys offer birders a way to help others gain an appreciation of birds and to promote conservation of important bird habitat. Five Valleys Audubon Society periodically has opportunities to conduct bird surveys for this purpose. Our past efforts have raised awareness of birds and established a scientific basis for seeking funding for conservation work. We hope to increase our bird survey efforts to take advantage of this opportunity. If you would like to help please let us know of your interest and availability.
We are planning surveys this year in the Missoula and Nine mile Valleys. We may also do surveys elsewhere in Missoula County.
If you have questions, please contact Jim Brown at 549-8052.
