Participants Wanted for Special Workshop on Waterfowl and Wetland Conservation
OBOL and Tweeters users: In support of a comprehensive national survey on viewer (birding) interests and wetland conservation, a workshop will be held in the Portland area on the evening of April 9, 2015. A total of 12 workshops with viewers will be completed in key geographic locations across North America to provide a diverse representation of important ecological characteristics and social traditions of viewing opportunities. Separate workshops will be conducted for waterfowl hunters. Results from the workshops will help to frame questions for an upcoming national survey to help inform the North American Waterfowl Management Plan.
Project organizers need about 12 participants for the Portland workshop. If you are interested in participating in this workshop, please respond by email to Brandon Reishus at brandon.s.reishus at state.or.us (Oregon) or Joe Buchanan at Joseph.Buchanan at dfw.wa.gov (Washington). Be sure to provide your name, contact information, approximate age, and level of experience as a wildlife viewer in wetland habitats. Please only respond if you would be able to participate on April 9th and please be aware that not all interested people will be asked to participate.
The survey will be a collaborative effort of the member states of the National Flyway Council, U.S. Geological Survey, U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service, Migratory Bird Joint Ventures, Ducks Unlimited and other partners.
