Congratulations on adopting a route! Now prepare for your high-elevation adventure…

Now that you’ve adopted a Mountain Birdwatch route, you’re ready to start preparing for your June adventure!  Each volunteer receives a copy of the Mountain Birdwatch training manual, data sheets, and training CD in the mail in April, along with information specific to the route.  If you’d like to get a head start on your training, all of these materials can be found here. If you have specific questions about the protocols or your survey, please check our Frequently Asked Questions page.
