Join the Great Backyard Bird Count at Grace Farms
February 15 @ 10:30 am - 12:00 pmFree
Help us count the birds at Grace Farms! Launched in 1998 by the Cornell Lab of Ornithology and the National Audubon Society, the Great Backyard Bird Count is the first online citizen-science project to collect data on wild birds.
— an announcement from Grace Farms
Now more than 160,000 people join the 4-day count each February to create an annual snapshot of the distribution and abundance of birds.
Join Master Birder Frank Mantlik on a special birdwatching tour and bird count to coincide with the global event.
We’ll be walking on mown trails, which may be wet, so please wear appropriate footwear, dress for the weather, and bring your binoculars.
