CLNP Bird Surveys

This past summer, the Kirtland Bird Club and Western Cuyahoga Audubon Society commenced birding surveys at the Cleveland Lakefront Nature Preserve (formerly known as Dike 14). This citizen science project will occur year-round with a greater focus during migration season. It is expected to last for at least 10 years. 

The Port Authority has granted us permission to install 16 T-posts in order to conduct point counts which will prove the importance of this significantly important birding area. Mark Shieldcastle from the Black Swamp Bird Observatory (BSBO) and Laura Gooch of Cleveland are responsible for organizing the protocol for the point counts at CLNP.

The Survey consists of 16 points along the trail which runs through CNLP. It takes a total of two hours to walk the whole trail and hit all points. Most groups will not hit all the points, and will use a far shorter amount of time to conduct their part of the survey.

This is a wonderful opportunity to conduct a significantly worthwhile citizen science project, aid in the conservation effort, and have the perfect excuse to make frequent birding visits to this beautiful park. If you are interested in volunteering to conduct point counts for the Dike 14-Doan Brook IBA research project at the Cleveland Lakefront Nature Preserve, contact: Project Coordinator, Laura Gooch at This email address is being protected from spambots.
