  1. Be a Better Birder - Richmond birders use their skills to help out the National Park Service--and get some in return!

Every spring, volunteer birders come to Richmond National Battlefield Park to help with the Breeding Bird Monitoring Program. Six parks within the National Park Service work on this citizen science project each year in the mid-atlantic area (from Virginia to Pennsylvania.)

The bird monitoring project lasts into the summer and is almost completely done by park volunteers. It is a great way to find your park, serve the community and engage with our natural resources.
