Note:  The organizers had been holding out, in hopes that coronavirus restrictions would be lifted in time to allow this citizen science training event t take place, but have now cancelled the in-person event.  Online webinars are being substituted, the first of which takes place Feb. 9.

This year’s annual survey for Black Oystercatchers will focus just on identifying and monitoring nest sites—the abundance survey will not be done this year.  If you would be interested in learning more about Black Oystercatchers and this citizen science project, and would like to consider becoming a volunteer, you can explore the topic at a training session on Saturday, May 2, 10 a.m. in the Cannon Beach City Hall (163 E. Gower Ave.).  The event, organized by Portland Audubon together with the Forest Service and other agencies and conservation groups, is free and open to all.

To learn more about the survey, see our article.
