Become and official bird surveyor for the Deschutes Land Trust! Bird surveyors record species and number of birds at our Preserves so that we can monitor avian populations and the effects of our restoration efforts.  You don't have to be an expert at bird ID to be a surveyor, learning to ID birds as you survey is part of the fun! Learn more about our volunteer bird survey program.

Bird surveyors volunteer as many days a year as they like. We ask for a commitment of at least one survey a month from May - September to volunteer for this program. To become a bird surveyor, please attend an upcoming training:

What to Bring: Binoculars and bird ID book (if you have them), snacks, water, and sturdy, closed toe shoes. Dress for the weather.

Rating: This is a moderate ~2 mile hike. Portions will be on gravel trails and through a grassy meadow. Terrain will be uneven at times.
