Holly Merker, Pennsylvania's eBird State Coordinator
Come learn how eBird benefits birders and researchers alike. These community/citizen science efforts make a difference in conservation science by using powerful data that demonstrate where birds are based on observations submitted to eBird by people like you. If you are new to eBird, we will go over how to submit data, and how to use eBird to learn more about birds, using free online educational tools provided by the Cornell Lab of Ornithology.
Holly Merker is an eBird data reviewer, hotspot reviewer, and an avid eBirder herself. She recently co-authored the book Ornitherapy For Your Mind, Body, and Soul that highlights the incredible power of birds to support our overall well-being.
