Marsh Monitoring Program Volunteer Training
The Great Lakes Marsh Monitoring Program is a bi-national, long-term monitoring program that coordinates the skills and dedication of hundreds of volunteer Citizen Scientists throughout the Great Lakes basin of Ontario and the United States. It is coordinated by Bird Studies Canada. Ohio Wetlands Association is a local organizer for recruitment, training and support. Bird Studies Canada, with support from the U.S. National Fish and Wildlife Foundation and Environment Canada, are working to expand the Marsh Monitoring Program in Ohio. The program is designed to collect information about the presence and abundance of bird and amphibian species in Great Lakes coastal and inland marshes, to contribute to our understanding of these species and their habitat needs. MMP volunteers have a unique and rewarding opportunity to support the study and conservation of some of North America's most important – and threatened – ecosystems. Come join us for a fun day! Bring a brown bag lunch and your enthusiasm!
