Hi, my name is Jory Teltser and I am a representative of the Aspetuck Land Trust. We are interested in obtaining data about what wildlife is seen on the Aspetuck Land Trust properties. The goal of this project is to gather as much data as we can through Citizen Science and cover as many Aspetuck Land Trust Preserves as possible. The Aspetuck Land Trust has approximately 50 trailed properties in Fairfield County, and many others that are non-trailed. Your observations and information will assist us in surveying the lands. This input will help us manage and conserve these critical nature preserves, will give us a better understanding of how these natural ecosystems function, and help us maintain and preserve current and future properties.
To give us your observations, please visit the Aspetuck Land Trust website and click on the mammal and bird observation form. There you will be able to submit your mammal observations. For your bird observations, however, we would appreciate your using eBird, or the Connecticut Bird Atlas observation forms. If you are using eBird, you can also record other animal observations in the checklist comments. Please be sure to provide as much information as possible. After submitting your eBird checklist, please share your checklist with the Aspetuck Land Trust eBird account, username “altbirds”. Remember to use breeding codes!
So get out and explore a new or local Aspetuck Land Trust Preserve!
If you need further information or have any questions, feel free to contact me.
