About The Great Backyard Bird Count on February 5th

Do you want to know about the Great Backyard Bird Count? Would you like to find out why it is important? Join us on Tuesday February 5th at 7:00pm to learn about and prepare for the bird count that takes place from February 15-18th. Kate Pratt from the Audubon Center at Bent of the River will help us understand just how important this is to the future of birds in our area.

This event is free and open to the public- please use the ticket/registration link to save a spot.

*How is the information from the GBBC used?
Bird populations are constantly changing. No single scientist or team of scientists could hope to keep track of the complicated patterns of movement of species around the world. The information from GBBC participants, combined with other surveys, helps scientists learn how birds are affected by environmental changes.

We will have related books in stock for the event. Light refreshments served.
