Volunteer to be a Citizen Scientist! Marsh Monitoring Workshop

When: Monday, March 6, 2017 - 7:00 PM
Where:Quinte Conservation Office, 2061 Highway #2Marsh Monitoring Workskhop

Birds and frogs tell us a lot about the health of the wetlands around the Bay of Quinte. The Bay of Quinte Remedial Action Plan is inviting you to become a citizen scientist for the Bay of Quinte by volunteering as a Marsh Monitor. Marsh Monitors help us learn about the health of our wetlands by observing for birds and frogs. Quinte area naturalist, Terry Sprague will explain: FrogWatch Ontario, which is great for the kids due to its simplicity and the more extensive Marsh Monitoring Program that includes both birds and frogs. You can monitor for one program or do both.
