Special Area Project (SAP)


The SAP is a field trip program that inventories birds on the state's public lands.


Volunteer birders adopt local state parks, game lands, natural areas, county parks, and sanctuaries for year-round bird population monitoring.


SAP gives birders an opportunity for field work and interaction with fellow birders.


Volunteers make multiple trips at all times of the year to their adopted location and record the species and numbers seen.


The data is then compiled and used to create checklists for the site and also serves as an inventory of the birdlife.
