Beach and bird lovers mark your calendar. This May, a handful of local groups will host training for volunteers who are interested in helping collect data on the iconic black oystercatcher. Along with community partners, The Audubon Society of Portland coordinates this great program to help everyone learn more about this beloved coastal bird every year.
The event will be held at Cannon Beach City Hall, 163 E. Gower St., on Friday, May 4, at 6 pm. This event is free and open to the public. No experience necessary.
The training is organized by Audubon Society of Portland in partnership with the Haystack Rock Awareness Program, Friends of Cape Falcon Marine Reserve, Oregon Marine Reserve Partnership, U.S. Geologic Society, and U.S. Fish and Wildlife.
