Purpose:
The goal of AMBLE is to empower concerned citizens to monitor bird health and beach conditions along miles of Lake Michigan shoreline, thus increasing knowledge of avian botulism trends. In 2013, management of the AMBLE program was transferred to two Door County non-government organizations, The Ridges Sanctuary and Crossroads at Big Creek, and only volunteers previously trained and equipped continued monitoring their designated sections of shoreline.
