The Clapper Rail Study Team was formed in 1985 in an effort to expand volunteer opportunities to rail recovery effort.  Study Team members help observe the rails, trap and band, search for nests, do call counts, etc.  The participants have come from all walks of life including students, engineers, policemen, mathematicians, administrative assistants, homemakers, and retirees, among many others.  Folks start as volunteers and once they catch on, they share in whatever grant money and donations we may have available.
