Join us for the annual tradition - the longest running Citizen Science effort in the country! - the Christmas bird Count!
We will be starting at the Visitor's center at 10AM on Saturday December 19th. Interested participants must RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org ! We will be dividing into groups to hike or drive our count circle, then returning to the visitor's center to warm up with lunch on us.
If you can tell a blue jay from a cardinal, or know the call of the chickadee then you are experienced enough to join! The Christmas Bird Count is for everyone - don't let the idea of collecting data scare you!
