To continue monitoring nesting grebes at Lake Almanor, Plumas Audubon Society has set a fundraising goal of $5000. We believe we can reach this goal with the help of our community members like you.
In past years, Plumas Audubon Society has conducted intensive monitoring at Lake Almanor, Eagle Lake, Antelope Lake, and Lake Davis. Surveys are conducted at each lake from the time that they begin their nest building through late September. The information that we collect on the grebes provides insights into their nesting habitat and reproductive success.
In addition to monitoring on the lakes, Plumas Audubon has conducted numerous outreach and education activities near the lakes. We have installed protective signs at strategic locations around lakes in areas where Aechmophorus grebes are known to breed. These signs alert lake users about the grebes and their nesting areas.
Plumas Audubon Society's study analyzes how lake users, reservoir managers, downstream water users, and local wildlife impact nesting Western and Clark's Grebes. Over the next five weeks, we will release our annual monitoring reports of nesting Aechmophorus grebes from years 2010 through 2019.
The results of our monitoring efforts are currently being compiled into our 10 year report. Those who support our Aechmophorus Grebe monitoring efforts will receive a summary of our 10-year report.
