Rusty Blackbird Spring Migration Blitz!


Rusty Blackbird is one of North America’s most rapidly declining species. The population has plunged an estimated 85-99 percent over the past forty years and scientists are completely puzzled as to what is the cause.

You can help by volunteering to help with the
Rusty Blackbird Spring Migration Blitz.   Target dates for New York state are March and April.  See what it's all about by visting this webpage, and consider helping to gather data which will aid scientists in unraveling this mystery.

Have you seen a Snowy?

Snowy Owls migrated south in record numbers this winter.  Several have been sighted in the Fort Edward Important Bird Area.  Check out Plum, Blackhouse, and Fitzpatrick Roads and you may be fortunate to see one of these magnificient birds.  Remember to remain at roadside and not in any way disturb them.  They are here because the food supply was not adequate in their normal wintering grounds and many are not in prime condition; any disturbance may contribute to their failure to make it through the winter in good health.


Our latest Toyota Together Green Project is a great Success!

Through the generosity of Toyota, we received a Together Green grant to construct and place monofilament fishing line receptacles at popular fishing locations within our chapter area.  Read more about the project here!
