Prairie-nesting birds at Powell Butte–Science Talk
September 26 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm
Last spring, JCWC, Conservation Insight, and Portland Parks & Recreaton partnered on a new research project to evaluate the impacts of restoration at Powell Butte–Portland’s largest Eastside park–on prairie-nesting birds, focusing on Savannah sparrows. Twenty JCWC Community Science volunteers counted birds on five transects for 11 weeks from April to June. Come hear Dr. Tom Virzi, the Executive Director of Conservation InSight, discuss the results of year one of this long-term study and what’s next! Local brewer Coalition Brewing will be on site, pouring two of their signature beers. This free talk runs from 6-7 p.m. Come a bit early and make new friends, see old friends, take a tour of the JCWC offices. Pre-registration is required. Register HERE
