    Metro Regional Center, Northeast Grand Avenue, Portland, OR, United States

    The Wetlands Conservancy is looking for adventurous folks who can help us survey our wetlands for signs of recent beaver activity! You don’t need any experience, but a love of nature and getting dirty will make this volunteer experience absolutely delightful.

    What: Train to monitor urban wetlands for beaver activity!

    Where: Metro – Council Chambers, 600 NE Grand Ave, Portland, OR

    When: July 14, 2018; 10am to noon

    Individual commitment: We will train volunteers in an indoor setting July 14th, and then accompany groups on surveys in wetlands around the Tualatin Basin and Portland Metro area. Once experienced, volunteers may also survey in their own small groups!  We are asking that participants commit to the training and complete three site visits to identify and document evidence of recent beaver activity. Bring your own friends or meet some during trainings and surveys!

    Please RSVP to Kacy Woodley: kacywoodley@wetlandsconservancy.org

    Attendance is limited so sign up ASAP!

    Join the 13th annual Marbled Murrelet community science survey on a spectacular stretch of Oregon’s coast near Yachats, Oregon. Training will be provided, so no prior experience is needed. This year, we are offering

    Area. We will be viewing and discussing old-growth forest habitat as well as the recently designated Cape Perpetua Marine Reserve and Seabird Protection Area. During the morning surveys, murrelets will be seen and/or heard on breeding territories and in their near-shore feeding areas.
