Great Backyard Bird Count
February 17, 2018
Mark your calendar to help us celebrate the closing of our ornithology season on February 17th with our Great Backyard Bird Count.
If you completed six shares and your Ornithology Challenge during our Ornithology Field Season you will earn free admission to the Arboretum for the event. You will also participate in a private event where you will help real ornithologists place special bands on birds so scientists can track their movements. Once you’ve completed the private event you will earn your ornithology badge.
This is a great, not-to-be-missed opportunity to see songbirds up close and contribute to real science!
