Forget can have the same thrill AND add to a database that is used in many ways. You too can be part of one of the largest citizen science projects in the world. The Nasketucket Bird Club will present a program about “eBird: The Ins and Outs” from Evan Dalton. Dalton is the Lead Instructor, Landbird Conservation for Manomet, a world renowned organization leading the way in science and education based on 50 years of bird banding research. Learn more about eBird, a technology from the Cornell Lab of Ornithology, how it uses everyday citizens to track birds, and how you can be a part of it.

The event will be held at 7:00 pm on Thursday, September 22 at the Mattapoisett Public Library, 7 Barstow Street. The entrance located on the South side of Barstow Street is handicap accessible. The meeting is free and open to the public.
