Throughout the spring and summer, we’ll be holding several plant surveys as part of a bird banding study habitat assessment and need volunteers. Even if your plant identification skills are rusty (or lacking), helping staff and more experience volunteers record data, take photos, and create maps will allow you to learn how to identify the common and uncommon plants in the area.
Surveys will take place the second Friday of each month (March-July)
Summary of previous surveys can be found on the Battle Creek Nature Education Society web page
