Monarch Citizen Science at John Heinz Refuge!

It’s that time again – monarchs are on the move! Check out we’re contributing to a cool citizen science project organized by Monarch Watch.

Citizen science to make a difference for the rusty blackbird

Birders from 38 U.S. states, 9 Canadian provinces and 3 Canadian territories tracked rusty blackbirds on their northward migration from the southeastern U.S. up through Canada and into Alaska. Scientists will use the data from the Blitz to target future conservation efforts and research initiatives.
