Dear Friends,

Our Bird-A-Thon count is complete! Our team saw a total of 107 different species of birds, wow! Check out the full list of species here. Some highlights from our day included:

     •  Beautiful, shy Wood Ducks in a small pond north of Point Reyes Station

     •  A Tropical Kingbird in a willow at Drakes Beach – an unusual vagrant species who happened to be passing through the area

     •  Birding with 3rd and 5th graders from Lishka and Missy’s Bird Club at the Pickleweed Park Community Center in San Rafael

     •  Seeing and hearing the Black Phoebe at every one of our stops!

Though our birding day is complete for this year, you can still donate to us to help support our work rebuilding habitat in the streams and wetlands of the North Bay. Our goal is to raise $15,000 to help support the STRAW Project restorations, the STRAW Faculty, and the Youth Watershed Challenge Project.

Remember, whether you like tree hugging, hunting, or clean water, good habitat is good for all of us!

Please help us reach our goal by donating on this page! If you have any other questions about Bird-A-Thon or STRAW, please contact Laurette Rogers at (707) 781-2555 x358 or lrogers@prbo.org.

Sincerely,

The STRAW Team:
Laurette Rogers, John Parodi, Emily Allen, Leia Giambastiani, Vanessa Wyant, Stephanie Nelson, Kathleen Brown, Ruth Hicks, Meryl Sundove, Barbara Tjernell, Paula Fogarty, Janet Clover, Patti Vance, Sandy Neumann


More about us:

We are proud to call PRBO Conservation Science our new home. Founded in 1965, PRBO is a non-profit organization dedicated to conserving birds, other wildlife and ecosystems through innovative scientific research and effective outreach.

The STRAW Restoration staff will use PRBO’s research on birds, ecosystems and climate change as we plan our habitat restoration projects with our network of K-12 students, teachers, landowners and partners. We provide teachers and students with the scientific, educational and technical resources to prepare them for hands-on, outdoor watershed studies, including ecological restoration of riparian corridors and transitional wetlands. The STRAW Faculty supports our network of classroom teachers in their studies of the environment and their participation in the STRAW Project.

The Youth Watershed Challenge Project (YWCP) provides opportunities for high school students in San Francisco to learn about the ecology of the Bay and its watershed, explore careers in science, and initiate actions in the community that promote environmental conservation. The YWCP also provides support in the classroom and professional development opportunities to San Francisco teachers.
