Bird Studies Canada and our partners run Marsh Monitoring Programs in the Maritimes, Québec, the Great Lakes region, and the Prairie provinces. Volunteers record information about marsh birds and their habitats. The results help track long-term trends in species diversity, and guide conservation, restoration, and management programs for marshes and their inhabitants.
The Maritimes Marsh Monitoring Program offers a unique and rewarding opportunity to contribute to the knowledge of wetlands, and their conservation. If you enjoy being surrounded by nature and have a knack for identifying birds, you can become a Volunteer Marsh Monitor.
Survey routes are visited two or three times between mid-May and mid-July. Volunteers are needed to listen for and record birds at local marshes in New Brunswick and Nova Scotia.
