Project Nighthawk Volunteer Training
Thursday, June 2, 2022,
5:30 pm to 6:30 pm
- This event has passed.
Nighthawks were once common in cities throughout New Hampshire, where they nested on gravel roofs and fed on insects attracted to city lights. In recent years, these acrobatic birds have disappeared from many New Hampshire towns, but they still nest in Keene, Concord, and a handful of other places in the Granite State. Help keep track of this charismatic endangered species by monitoring nighthawks this summer! To volunteer with Project Nighthawk, attend this online training with Becky Suomala (NH Audubon) and Brett Amy Thelen (Harris Center). We’ll provide an introduction to nighthawk identification and ecology, and offer tips for nighthawk watching — including where to scout for them in the twilight skies.
5:30 to 6:30 p.m. via Zoom. Closed captioning will be available. To get the login details, please register here. Co-sponsored by the Harris Center for Conservation Education, NH Audubon, and Keene State College.
This event will be recorded. To ensure access to the recording, please register for this event, even if you cannot attend live.
