Trescott/CCLC: Keynote Presentation: The Maine Bird Atlas

Maine Bird Atlas 2018-2022 is a five-year citizen-science project to answer the questions How many breeding and wintering birds are there in Maine? and Where can they be found? The project is a collaboration between the Maine Natural History Observatory, the Maine Department of Inland Fisheries and Wildlife, Maine Audubon, and the Biodiversity Research Institute.

The project website is and its blog, the Black-capped Chronicle, is at wordpress/ifwbirdatlas/.

Numerous volunteers are already engaged in mapping species distribution and abundance of breeding birds in every corner of the state. The new atlas will give conservationists not only a complete guide to Maine bird species but also an opportunity to track how populations have changed. This will help determine conservation priorities for years to come.

A light buffet supper of homemade soup and salad, breads, and desserts accompanies the presentation.
