Monitoring Birds at the Detroit River International Wildlife Refuge

Detroit Audubon is seeking volunteers to help monitor the birds found on the Detroit River International Wildlife Refuge (DRIWR). Much of the area of the DRIWR has yet to have its flora and fauna documented. Greg Norwood, the biologist at the DRIWR, is working to develop an inventory of plants and animals found there by doing regular monitoring in different parts of the refuge. Volunteers will receive training and will be asked to participate in several monitoring sessions during the breeding season. We would like to have one or more DAS teams participate this coming year.
