The Joys of Atlasing, online event April 29, 2020

Publication Date

April 29th @5:30 p.m. via WebEx

Presented by Julie Hart SUNY ESF | New York Natural Heritage Program Project Coordinator of the New York Breeding Bird Atlas III

It has been 20 years since the last breeding bird atlas in New York State and a lot has changed! The third atlas will take place from 2020-2025 and involve thousands of volunteers from across the state. Learn about the history of the atlas, the importance of atlas data, and how you can get involved. Atlasing is a great excuse to explore new areas and provides an intimate look into the daily lives of birds. Whether you are a beginner or advanced birder, this unique opportunity will strengthen your birdwatching skills while contributing valuable data to a large conservation-oriented project.

You may begin the login process at 5:15pm so that we can be sure to help anyone who might need assistance with the technology. The presentation is expected to begin promptly at 5:30pm.

Enter your name and email address and click “Join Meeting.” This will allow you to join the meeting on your computer so that you can see the presentation.

If your computer has a built-in microphone and speaker, you will be able to hear the presentation from your computer and ask questions.

If your computer does not have a microphone and speaker, you also need to call in to the webinar using your phone. Follow the directions on the computer screen to log in via phone. You must join the meeting first.

Once you are logged in to the meeting, be sure to mute your computer and phone (if using). This will prevent feedback and reduce background noise.

The mute button looks like a microphone.

We will use the chat (text) features of the webinar for questions. When you are in the meeting, mouse over the bottom part of your screen so that the webinar buttons appear. Click on the chat bubble button to open the chat window. We will monitor your questions and answer them at the end of the presentation.
