What We Do

Current Research & Community Science Schedule

Week of December 10 - December 16

Hello! Our weekly bird walks will continue throughout the winter, but for the most part, our field work is done for the year.

There are, however, plenty of data analysis opportunities available to interested community science volunteers. We welcome volunteers of all ages and experience levels. Please contact us if you are interested in learning more.

Happy researching! - Jennifer, Jessica, and Tim

Research and Community Science News:

Urban Ecology Center community scientists participating in the 118th Annual Christmas Bird CountThe Research and Community Science team is proud to be part of the nation's longest-running community science bird project—Audubon’s Christmas Bird Count. Last year we were one of the 2,585 counts participating who collectively recorded almost the same number of bird species (2,673 species). These data have provided a consistent annual summary of winter birding over the last 118 years and we are excited to see how the 119th year turns out!

Click here to register for this free, fun, and festive volunteer opportunity on Saturday, December 15th. Even if you’ve never tried bird watching, we have binoculars you can borrow and our team of community scientists will be there to help you make your own discoveries along the way.
