Description: It's really fun to find out when the piping plover that you saw was banded, where it spent the winter, and how many chicks it fledged last year. But that's just the barest beginning of what can be learned when everyone's sighting reports are pooled. Learn how researchers from Virginia Tech are analyzing these reports to gather information that can be used to inform conservation on the ground. 

Presentation Thursday, October 20th
