Do you ever watch birds? Do you wonder how scientist collect breeding bird data across the entire state with limited resources? Join CLC and Kathryn Schneider to learn about the 3rd NY Breeding Bird Atlas, a statewide community science project that monitors breeding birds. Learn why the project is so important to birds, what has been found so far, and how you too can get involved.
