2011 Steward Training Sessions

As the 2011 shorebird nesting season begins, the Collier County Shorebird Partnership is entering its second year of stewarding in Collier County. This year, training for Lee and Collier Counties is being combined, and rooftop monitoring–yes, some Least Terns nest on area roofs!–is being introduced to southwest Florida. Data collection is also being added to the program, which will require some additional training for site leaders/coordinators.

Upcoming locations and dates are:

Collier Shorebird Statewide Database Training: Tues, March 29 at 1 p.m. – 3pm; at Rookery Bay Visitor Center.

Lee Shorebird Statewide Database Training: Wed, March 16 (details to be determined).

Beach Steward Training: Sat, April 30 at 9 a.m.; at Delnor Wiggins Pass State Park in the Pavilion at Parking Lot 5.

Rooftop Steward Training: Sat, May 14 at 10 a.m.; at Veterans’ Park Community Center (about 3 miles east of Delnor Wiggins SP on CR846; address: 1895 Veterans’ Park Drive, Naples, 34109).

To get more information or sign up, please contact Brad Cornell at bcornell@collieraudubon.org.
