Research and Environmental Monitoring
|Students Monitoring Nests|
In the past years, bird studies at Amherst College have included blue jay research at an enclosure in the "Bird Sanctuary", nest box and hummingbird studies, and others.
Amherst College encourages the use of the Wildlife Sanctuary for Research. In order to ensure minimal disturbance to the Sanctuary, as well as to the research project, it is necessary to submit a Research Application. Applications must be submitted at least two months prior to the proposed start date of the research.
