Citizen Science Conservation along the Poudre River Urban Corridor
May 7, 2021 @ 2:00 pm - 2:30 pm MDTFREE!
Join us for a special online presentation as we celebrate the Poudre RiverFest!
Healthy rivers are crucial for the economy and health of our communities by providing sediment and water for crops, mitigating the impact of floods and droughts, drinking water, recreation opportunities and habitat for fish and wildlife. In 2013, Bird Conservancy of the Rockies developed a citizen science program to monitor the Eastern Screech-owl, an indicator species of riparian forest health, along the Poudre River urban corridor. We will show how citizen science plays an important role for the community, wildlife and planners along the Poudre River.
