If you missed “Bird Monitoring: Get outside and get involved!” with Friends of Cape Falcon, you can watch the video at https://youtu.be/iV7DzYZa4zI. Learn about volunteer efforts led by Portland Audubon to collect data on birds, what these volunteer opportunities involve and find the project that best suits your interests and schedule.
The program also covered volunteer opportunities with Haystack Rock Awareness Program and other ocean-focused coastal conservation groups. Stay tuned for information on those opportunities towards the end of the program.
