Learn about the work by Audubon Canyon Ranch (ACR) by their scientists, colleagues, students and volunteers who study the local status and ecology of wintering and migrant shorebirds and waterbirds in the Bay Area.

Nils will present results of 30 years of waterbird monitoring by ACR in Tomales Bay and discuss results of ACR’s 50 year’s of work on herons and egrets throughout the Bay area.
