Great Backyard Bird Count

Friday, February 16, 2024


Enjoy a quiet morning learning about Iowa birds and a special citizen science project, Great Backyard Bird Count. To start off our morning, there will be a short presentation about this global volunteer project and birding basics. Then participants can choose to set out on a self-guided hike to search for birds or cozy up inside by our bird viewing window to count birds. A light breakfast of bagels, donuts, coffee and juice will be provided during the program. Whether you are a novice bird watcher or a seasoned “bird nerd”, we could use your help counting!


Volunteers need to count birds for a minimum of 15 minutes for their numbers to count towards the research project. All ages are welcome to attend.
