Breeding Bird Atlas Workshop
January 16, 2020 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
It has been 20 years since the last breeding bird atlas in New York State and a lot has changed! The third atlas will take place from 2020-2025 and involve thousands of volunteers from across the state. This workshop will cover the history of the atlas, the importance of atlas data and how you can get involved. We’ll also cover using eBird to enter data. Whether you are a beginner or advanced birder, this unique opportunity will strengthen your bird watching skills while contributing valuable data to a large conservation-oriented project. Contact Wendy Tocci (email@example.com), Co-Regional Coordinator for the Hudson region if you plan on attending as well as if you have any questions about the workshop.
Directions: The workshop will take place at the stone house at Hasbrouck Park in Kingston. Take the Delaware Avenue exit off of Rte 9W in Kingston, and proceed east on Delaware Avenue. Look for the entrance and a sign to Hasbrouck Park on your right, just past the entrance to the Corporate Drive Industrial Park on your left, and just before going down a steep hill. (If you go down a steep hill with a sharp curve and white retaining wall, you have passed the entrance to Hasbrouck Park.) Drive through the gate to the first stone building on your right. There is additional parking at a larger lot just below the stone building.
The field trips of JBNHS are oriented to nature study. They are free and open to the public. We do, however, sometimes visit sites that charge admission fees, which are the responsibility of the participants. Children are very welcome on field trips, but pets are not. Although there is a brief courtesy waiting period for latecomers, the meeting times are important: please arrive in time to sign up with the leader.
