VOLUNTEERS NEEDED TO GATHER INFORMATION FOR URBAN BREEDING BIRD ATLAS

The New Jersey Department of Environmental Protectionís (DEP) Division of Fish and Wildlife is seeking volunteers to gather information on the breeding occurrences of endangered and threatened bird species in urban areas associated with the Raritan Bay/Raritan River, Arthur Kill, Kill van Kull, lower Passaic and Hackensack River watersheds. The project is a collaborative effort between the DEP, New Jersey Audubon Society (NJAS), NY/NJ Baykeeper and the Hackensack Riverkeeper.

Volunteers must be able to identify by sight or sound New Jersey's endangered and threatened bird species, be willing to visit sites twice during the breeding season, spend approximately two hours per visit (depending on the site) and take careful notes of their observations. For more information, contact Melissa Craddock at 908-735-9281 or e-mail her at nromcraddock@nac.net.
