Current Collaborative projects:
This Smithsonian Project is coming to Raleigh in Spring 2015! A primary goal of Neighborhood NestWatch is to understand how migratory birds respond to urbanization. Residents help scientists study migratory birds in their back yards by hosting in-person visits that turn backyards into study sites and collecting data when scientists are at other homes.
Past Collaborative projects:
In collaboration with the Human Dimensions Research Unit in the Natural Resources Dept at Cornell University, we are studying bird watching and hunting, sense of place, and conservation.
