I will be helping with the upcoming Aton Forest bird surveys and I encourage anyone who can spend a morning in one of the most beautiful areas of our state to do so as well. As John mentioned, anyone can assist! You will be helping Aton Forest and the CT Bird Atlas also.
After helping out, you can spend some time enjoying the birds and the view at Benedict Pond a few minutes down the road. This is one of my all time favorite birding locations and a spot to “feed your soul”!
Contact John Anderson for questions.

> We are looking for volunteers to help with the Aton Forest breeding bird surveys during the month of June. You don’t need to be an expert birder, as you will be working with one of our local experts Kateri Kosek. We need people who can hike a couple miles, keep time and take notes during the survey period. There are three routes which need to be surveyed every week for three weeks; only one route is run each day when weather permits; each route takes approximately 3 hours to complete and are about 2 km long. Surveys begin at first light, about 5 am. Beginners as well as experts are welcome. We have sleeping/living quarters for those who would like to come up the night before.
