Please review these criteria before submitting your application:
We highly recommend running a trial count for the first season before submitting your application to Audubon. This helps ensure that your proposed circle is one you and your participants will be happy with for the future.
In running a trial count, unanticipated logistical problems may be discovered, and you can make sure your circle includes the best possible combination of local habitats, as well as ensure you have enough participation to adequately cover the area. The trial count is also important as once a new count has been proposed and accepted the location cannot be changed.
Once you have established a proposed location please complete the details below and submit to Audubon before December 1.
