Help Audubon Staff and Wildlife Biologists count birds all over Debs Park! Join us for the ultimate birding scavenger hunt, where you'll become a Community Scientist for the day as you tally bird species and numbers! The Great Backyard Bird Count (GBBC) is a free, fun, and easy event that engages bird watchers of all ages in counting birds to create a real-time snapshot of bird populations.
Each checklist submitted during the GBBC helps researchers at the Cornell Lab of Ornithology and the National Audubon Society learn more about how birds are doing, and how to protect them and the environment we share. Last year, more than 160,000 participants submitted their bird observations online, creating the largest instantaneous snapshot of global bird populations ever recorded.
We will meet in the courtyard at 8am for a light breakfast, and begin the count around 8:30. Lunch will also be provided following the count.
Bring your preferred binoculars and field guides! If you don't have any, don't get your feathers in a bunch- borrow some of ours! We'll have binoculars and field guides available for loan.
Please RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org
