Wildlife Survey Request

My friend Christina is looking for volunteers to help with a wildlife survey in Queens.

From Christina:

Queens County Farm Museum had their annual meeting tonight (I am on their board) and one of their goals for the upcoming year was to have a bird survey of the property done I’m sure they would also appreciate a survey of everything else found on the property (butterflies, dragonflies, mammals, etc.).

From the farm's website:

The Queens County Farm Museum dates back to 1697; it occupies New York City's largest remaining tract of undisturbed farmland, and is the only working historical farm in the city. The farm encompasses a 47-acre parcel that is the longest continuously farmed site in New York State. The site includes historic farm buildings, a greenhouse complex, livestock, farm vehicles and implements, planting fields, an orchard, and an herb garden.
