It wouldn’t be possible to monitor the city’s birds and natural areas without the help of volunteers. Hundreds of people are needed to survey heron foraging sites, count horseshoe crabs at spawning beaches, and search for birds that are the victims of collisions with windows. Learn more our conservation programs and decide how you'd like to participate. If you already know which program you're interested in, check our spring orientation schedule below, and sign up!
