Citizen Science Bird Survey at Volcan Mountain, Thursday, September 21st, 2017

Thursday, September 21, 2017 - 7:30am

Thursday, September 21st join Volcan Mountain Foundation partners the San Dieguito River Valley Conservancy (SDRVC) and Palomar Audubon for a citizen science bird survey on SDRVC's Volcan Mountain parcels near Julian.

If you are a birder, or an aspiring birder, this is a great opportunity to hone your bird ID skills with experts, learn about our local mountain bird species, and contribute valuable data to the San Dieguito River Park.
'Down the Hill' volunteers will meet at Albertsons in Ramona (1459 Main Street, Ramona, Ca 92065) at 7:30am and carpool to the survey site in Julian. For more info, and Julian-area volunteers, email SDRVC Conservation Manager Jack Hughes at jack@sdrvc.org for Julian location and timing details.
Get your binoculars ready – you might just see a Hairy Woodpecker or a Golden Eagle, both of which have been spotted during previous surveys. This walking survey is approximately 0.85 mile (round-trip) and provides stunning views of the Santa Ysabel East Preserve and surrounding area.

*IMPORTANT: The walking survey area is approximately 4,100 feet in elevation and encompasses a moderate-strenuous 0.85 mile (round trip) hike. Participants should come prepared with closed-toe shoes, long pants, snacks and plenty of water.
