Nature Aurora* is a working group of volunteer citizen scientists aimed at protecting, preserving, and enhancing ecologically important wildlife habitats in Aurora, Ontario.
Interested in our projects? Please join us for an open house on Saturday, March 3, 2018 from 2-5pm at the Aurora Seniors Centre. Meet our current team, learn about our ongoing and future projects, and sign up to volunteer with us!
Our project pages detail some of the different initiatives that we have worked on or are ongoing, including nest box monitoring, breeding bird studies, storm water pond monitoring, a master plan for the Ivy Jay Community Nature Reserve, and more.
We are pleased to announce the release of our landmark Breeding Birds of Aurora study, a multi-year study of bird habitats, behaviour, movement, and breeding trends in Aurora, ON. The report maps the present distribution of the breeding bird population and documents changes resulting from development in the area. Included are a forward by Bridget Stutchbury of York University, and recommendations as to how citizens can work together to protect and conserve breeding bird populations and enhance wildlife habitats.
Contact us for volunteer opportunities and more information about our projects.
