The Marsh Monitoring Program (MMP) was developed in 1994 by Bird Studies Canada in cooperation with Environment Canada. The MMP is a volunteer based program that helps assess wetland health within AOC’s. Volunteers are assigned a marsh route and can contribute by monitoring either amphibians or marsh birds once a month throughout April, May and June.
Time commitment is only 2 to 3 evenings a summer! Data collected through the MMP provides valuable insight on the long term trends of species diversity, occurrence and abundance, and helps to inform and guide conservation, restoration and management programs for marshes and their bird and amphibian inhabitants.
For more information on the MMP and to find out how you can get involved contact the RRCA at 613-938-3611 or visit http://www.bsc-eoc.org/volunteer/glmmp/
