Come join the Virginia Breeding Bird Atlas - Appalachian Mountains Joint Venture who will be hosting a series of Atlas rallies in the most under-surveyed regions of the state. The goal of these events is to provide an opportunity for volunteers to travel to a lesser-known part of the Commonwealth, and to survey a number of priority blocks over the course of the weekend. In other words, to blockbust!  Atlas Coordinator, Dr. Ashley Peele, is partnering with regional coordinators, as well as Chief Rangers at four of VA’s State Parks to host these events.

Registration deadline for all events May 1st!

The General Schedule for these events is available now.  Specific event details will be emailed to registered participants several weeks prior to each event.
