A citizen supported research program to monitor the migrant and breeding forest bird populations of the Cook Arboretum in Janesville, Wisconsin, to document long-term changes in bird populations, species diversity, and habitat changes.

Volunteers Needed!

Interested in helping the BCARP?  We need people to help sample birds on Saturday, 9 June and Saturday, 7 July, 2018.  Expertise with forest birds not needed, as you can be paired with more experienced birders.  Please click on Information for Participants for details.
