Great Backyard Bird Count: February 17, 2018

flicker2Join over 160,000 people worldwide as we celebrate and participate in the Great Backyard Bird Count at Wellfield Botanic Gardens! Launched in 1998 by the Cornell Lab of Ornithology and National Audubon Society, the Great Backyard Bird Count was the first online citizen-science project to collect data on wild birds and to display results in near real-time. Help us contribute to this worldwide, four-day count to create an annual snapshot of the distribution and abundance of birds around the globe.
 
Audubon Society member and Indiana Master Naturalist Mary Kauffmann-Kennel leads this family-friendly bird walk along Wellfield trails to see and hear the numerous bird species that live and frequent our wonderful habitat. Dress for the weather, wear comfortable walking shoes, bring any bird guide books you have and binoculars (not required). Beginning and experienced birders are welcome. The walk generally lasts about an hour, but could go longer depending on the group.
 
The walk is free for all to paricipate.
Check in at the admission counter at Wellfield Botanic Gardens.
Saturday, February 17, 8 a.m.
