Calling on volunteers for bird monitoring

Written by 

Volunteers are needed to assist in a breeding bird monitoring and education program throughout the spring and early summer at two sites along the Little Tennessee River.

From May to August, Southern Appalachian Raptor Research is conducting eight monitoring samples at the Tessentee Bottomland Preserve and the Cowee Mound property. The first workday was May 18, but volunteers can sign up for any of the 15 future survey dates, and no experience is necessary. The second of the 16 sampling dates is May 23 at Tessentee.

The project is designed to monitor productivity, survivorship, and population trends of birds and provide other information relating to the ecology, conservation of their populations. The Land Trust for the Little Tennessee and the Eastern Band of Cherokee Indians are also partners in the project. A calendar of sampling dates and further information can be found online or by calling

Harper, with her million-dollar smile and swagger, immediately made me feel at home.
