In this segment of the site, we use the power of community science to gather data! Any kind of monitoring surveys will be posted here.
Methane Burner Monitoring
Multiple Raptors have been burned and singed flying through the invisible flame of a methane burner on Disposal Rd, Lyndhurst, NJ. Thanks to the determination of BCAS President Don Torino and Field Chair Chris Takacs, a system has been installed surrounding the methane burner, along with bird deterrent caps. We have been asked to monitor the burner for US Fish and Wildlife Service and report if it is a successful deterrent to keep birds from flying through or landing near the burner.
What to Do
If you visit Disposal Road and can observe the burner area for a few minutes to an hour or two, we would greatly appreciate your filling out the form in this link and noting your observations in the comments. For more information contact Karen Nickeson: firstname.lastname@example.org
