Description: NPS will create a long-term program for monitoring avifauna in the Santa Monica Mountains and Simi Hills that will be implemented by â¿¿citizen scientists,â¿ knowledgeable bird watchers recruited from communities surrounding the park. The program has two goals. The first is to produce yearly data of sufficient quality and areal coverage to provide assessments of avifauna community composition and population trends that can be used to guide park management. The second is to provide volunteer bird watchers with the opportunity to deepen their experience by teaching them scientific methodology and involving them in the collection of data that will contribute to park and regional bird conservation efforts.
