Fort McHenry @fortmchenrynps2 months ago · Fort McHenry National Monument & Historic Shrine

August is #CitizenScience month, a time to recognize the efforts of those who combine their skills and enthusiasm to contribute to the knowedge and protection of our parks and resources. Our volunteer birders interpret the natural resources of the site and serve as citizen scientists by gathering data on the species distribution and habits of birds around the fort, and document their observations for the Cornell Lab of Ornithology. #FindYourPark #Parks101 #NPSVolunteer #birds Photo credit: NPS Volunteer Wendy
