CITIZEN SCIENCE

19TH ANNUAL GREAT BACKYARD BIRD COUNT

FEBRUARY 12-15 

Show how much you care about birds by participating in the 19th annual Great Backyard Bird Count! Simply count birds for at least 15 minutes on one or more of the count days (February 12-15), and report your sightings online. 

Around the globe, tens of thousands of volunteers – of all ages and birding skill levels – will participate, wherever they happen to be. If wintery weather conditions prevent you from venturing out on a walk, you can even count the birds outside your window! This free, family-friendly event is fun, provides great opportunities to learn more about birds and connect with nature, and supports bird conservation. 

 The Great Backyard Bird Count is a joint project of Audubon and the Cornell Lab of Ornithology with Canadian partner Bird Studies Canada, and is supported in Canada by Armstrong Bird Food and Wild Birds Unlimited.

What is a Rain Garden?

A rain garden is a landscaped area designed to capture and hold access rain water for a short period, allowing it to soak into the soil and recharge the groundwater.  Rain gardens help slow the flow of water from a yard during and after a storm, reducing water pollution and allowing groundwater recharge.
