Citizen Science

There are many opportunities to get out into the field with Tucson Audubon! Go birding with these programs and contribute to important data sets that help us monitor bird populations of southeast Arizona.

We highly recommend the use of eBird. Even if you can’t bird with us, entering your bird checklists into eBird also adds valuable data points that can be used by researchers around the world!
