Atlas Opening Weekend

By Carrie Becker May 17, 2016

Prime-time summer atlasing is almost upon us, and we’re staging Opening Weekend events throughout Wisconsin on the weekends of June 4 & 5 and June 11 & 12 to celebrate.

Join hundreds of Atlasers as we get out into the field through dozens of mini-field trips.

Do you have to be an expert birder to take part? No! Atlas Opening Weekend is a great time to learn how to participate in the Atlas.

How do Atlas Opening Weekend events work?

Step 1: Head out to a local hotspot for a few hours with expert local birders and Atlas County Coordinators to gather data.
Step 2: Return to civilization, fire up some laptops and enter your findings into the Atlas eBird portal!
