Threatened Western Snowy Plover Project, Volunteer Training

Los Angeles Audubon will conduct a training session for volunteers interested in helping to monitor the Snowy Plover, a small bird that lives on Los Angeles County beaches. Volunteers have been formally surveying Los Angeles County beaches since 2007, gathering data on wintering plovers and those that might attempt to breed in the spring.

Once volunteers are trained, they can help observe birds during four survey windows throughout the year. Volunteers help monitor from Malibu to Long Beach. This is a great opportunity to learn about our beaches from a conservation point of view. If you are unable to attend a training session but would still like to participate in monitoring, other training options may be available in the coming months. Once you've registered with us, the volunteer coordinator will provide you with details about where exactly we'll meet and what to bring. Contact: This email address is being protected from spambots.
