Lend a hand for the birds

Volunteers are needed at the bird-monitoring station at Tessentee Bottomland Preserve in Macon County.

The program is a nationwide effort coordinated by the Institute for Bird Populations to monitor productivity, survivorship and population trends of breeding birds throughout North America.

Southern Appalachian Raptor Research, based in Mars Hill, is conducting the second season of monitoring at the Tessentee Bottomland Preserve, a tract owned by the Land Trust for the Little Tennessee.

Volunteers can help by setting up nets, picking and banding birds, birding surveys, vegetation surveys, paperwork and data management. Data samples are taken once every 10 days during late spring and summer. This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..
