After a short presentation about our nest box project, volunteers will borrow some waders and trek into the swamp to learn the nest box locations and prepare them for the season. Interested volunteers can monitor them as little as once or as many as 12 times between April and July.
Since we have a limited number of waders up to size 13, please let us know your shoe size when you register so that we can try to have enough waders for everyone.
Location: Battle Creek Cypress Swamp
Naturalist in charge: Shannon Steele
Reservations are required by Friday, March 8. Register online, by email, by mail, or by phone, 410-535-5327.
Free for volunteers
