The Problem

Wild bird populations have declined dramatically. Ignorance about the wild bird population prevents people from figuring out how they can help protect bird habitat.

Our Plan

What: we will make a laminated sheet about bird species we see along Hillsborough’s Riverwalk How: we will use bird books and online resources such as iNaturalist, eBird, and Merlín Bird to research the birds. We will put the information in a Google doc which we will print and laminate. We will ask permission to hang these sheets at the entrances to Riverwalk so people can use them while taking a walk. Where: on Riverwalk in Hillsborough, along the Eno River When: In the next couple months this spring in 2022
