NestWatch

April 27 | 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm

Included with general admission to the VINS Nature Center.
Come to VINS to learn about NestWatch, a citizen science project, and help study nesting birds in your own backyard in your free time! VINS is Vermont’s first official NestWatch Chapter, and we are excited to share with you the protocols and practice of monitoring nesting birds, so YOU can contribute to scientific knowledge.
During the workshop you will:
  • Learn the history and purpose of NestWatch
  • Meet one of VINS’ nestbox residents!
  • Get hands-on experience checking a nestbox and collecting data
  • Have the option to buy a nestbox kit ($10)
  • Take a short, easy quiz and become a certified NestWatcher!
