Long-billed Curlew Surveys Are Back

The warm and sunny days of Spring are fast approaching, and with that comes the familiar “cur-leeee” of the Long-billed Curlew, an icon of America’s prairies. The Long-billed Curlew depends on Montana’s grasslands for breeding, and continues to decline across its range due to loss of this habitat to development of agriculture and infrastructure.

With this decline, more research is needed  to assess the health and conservation needs of the population, so we need your help surveying these charismatic shorebirds in three locations: Mission Valley, Helena Valley, and Blackfoot Valley!

Two survey windows will be available for citizen scientists to participate in this unique effort: April 8th – May 7th, 2024 and May 8th – May 31st, 2024. 

Interested in participating? Email Gwynne at [email protected] and visit our citizen science website for more information!
