Snowy Plover Patrol Webinar--2

April 25, 2020 - 11:30 AM
Portland Audubon, Oregon Department of Parks and Recreation

The annual volunteer monitoring project that monitors Western Snowy Plover nesting on the north coast, the Snowy Plover Patrol, has been delayed due to the coronavirus, and physical training sessions aren’t currently possible.  However, the project’s primary sponsors, Portland Audubon and the Oregon Parks and Recreation Department, are preparing the project for launch whenever pandemic precautions are lifted by holding a series of training webinars online.  There are four modules, each of which is offered on two occasions.  These webinars are free—you can take any of them twice is you so desire.

The second set takes place on Saturday, April 25.  Module 2 occurs 11:30 a.m.-12:20 p.m.  (Note that Module 1 takes place at 10:00 on the same day, and that both modules also take place on April 17—see separate listing.)

The subject for Module 2 is “A Species at Risk.”  It covers Understanding the Endangered Species Act, Legal Status, Management Strategies, and Recovery.

The online training will take place over Zoom. To register, contact Frances Buchanan, asopcoastalbirds@gmail.com.  You will be sent an invitation and instructions.
