Christmas Bird Count

Saturday, December 17 , 12 pm – 1 pm, 2016

Join the Prospect Park Alliance for this fun Citizen Science project in Prospect Park, an Important Bird Area with more than 250 species of birds spotted each year. Blooming birdwatchers and naturalists of all ages can join a tradition more than 100 years in the making: a nationwide bird census that helps conservation researchers track the long-term health of bird populations. Each checklist submitted helps researchers learn more about the health of birds and how to best protect them! 

Please contact Steven Wong, Alliance Supervising Educator at the Audubon Center, for more information.
