Black Oystercatcher Community Science Training CANCELLED

10:00 am - 12:00 pm

Cannon Beach City Hall


The Haystack Rock Awareness Program, in partnership with Portland Audubon and Friends of Cape Falcon Marine Reserve, are holding a training for volunteers who are interested in helping to collect data on black oystercatchers.

Black Oystercatchers are a striking and easily recognizable bird in which we share our coast. It is also a species of conservation concern because of its small population size and vulnerability to a variety of impacts. Our work with this bird is helping in or efforts to protect rocky shoreline habitats.

If you would like to learn more about this amazing bird and are interested in helping with Portland Audubon’s community science effort to monitor oystercatchers on the coast, consider attending this training. The training will cover Black Oystercatcher life history, conservation challenges they face, and instructions on how to participate in our nest monitoring program. Light refreshments will be served.
