Since 2009, Prescott Audubon Society and Prescott Creeks have collaborated on conducting migrating bird surveys in the Watson Woods Riparian Preserve portion of the Watson and Willow Lakes Ecosystem Important Bird Area. Surveys were initiated concurrent with ecological restoration work performed on Granite Creek in the Preserve to improve habitat for native birds among other things.
