The project was launched in 2020 and is approaching the final year of data collection this summer. Join us to learn how breeding bird atlases work and why this Atlas is so important for Newfoundland, and to hear about our progress to date, the highlights (and lowlights) of fieldwork in remote Newfoundland, and how you can join in the fun.
