Highstead, Cornell Ornithology Lab, and the Northeast Bird Habitat Conservation Initiative are pleased to announce upcoming eBird training webinars focused on how Cornell’s eBird tool, an online bird checklist program, can be used to encourage engagement with supporters, the community, and landowners.
eBird and Cornell Land Trust Bird Conservation Initiative staff will present interactive workshops demonstrating the power of eBird and how to use eBird science data to support activities such as land acquisition, monitoring, and engagement with landowners, stakeholders, and the birding community. The sessions are designed for Regional Conservation Partnership and land trust leaders who will be taught the basics of eBird so they can lead their own future workshops. Participants will be eligible to apply for mini-grants in 2022 to subsidize the costs of hosting their eBird workshops. Click here for more information.
The training will take place in two parts. For the most effective training experience, participants should plan to attend both webinars.
