The University of Lethbridge has released a new Campus Bird Checklist as a way to get the community involved and to explore local surroundings. Master’s student, Samantha Krause helped with the initiative documenting over 135 different species of birds at various times on campus. The team used an E-Bird software to document and keep track of the sightings throughout campus.
Krause says the project has been in the works for several months.
Krause says she is eager to grow the birding culture in the city as it’s a way to get more people on campus and excited about the natural setting that invites these varied species. You can find the checklist by visiting the University of Lethbridge website.
