Conducting Field Transects and Bird Surveys: Field Day at Bosque del Apache (FREE day-trip)

Dr. Yadéeh Sawyer takes us to the Bosque del Apache National Wildlife Refuge where we will systematically walk and record observations of birds and other flora and fauna of the area (also know as field transects). Students will complete a scavenger hunt to learn about scientific observation.  A science journal will be provided to allow students to document their observations, both written and illustrative.  At the end of our trip, we will analyze our observations. 

This event is free for UNM undergraduates. Prior experience with field work is not required.  This event is especially great for first- and second-year students who are interested in exploring different STEM disciplines or learning more about research. Students should be prepared to hike about 2 milesduring this event.

Please contact Tara Hackel with any questions related to the event at or 505-277-0417.
