Since 2006, citizen scientists of the Western Cuyahoga Audubon Society have been hard at work collecting valuable bird data throughout the east branch of the Rocky River Watershed, in an area designated the Rocky River IBA. Birds are excellent indicators of ecosystem health, therefore it is our hope that this data will help educate the inhabitants of Cleveland and the surrounding suburbs and encourage the community to become more involved in the conservation of our natural resources, and eventually create a ring of contiguous green space around greater Cleveland, and throughout the Rocky River Reservation.
