Please join us at the Kelly Adirondack Center as we contribute to citizen science and the Great Backyard Bird Count. We’ll be identifying, tallying, and reporting birds with the assistance of the President of Southern Adirondack Audubon, John Loz.
The GBBC was launched by the Cornell Lab of Ornithology and the National Audubon Society in 1998 to collect data on wild birds worldwide. Last year over 190,000 people reported on more than 6,000 species of birds. These statistics provide scientists with documentation that would be impossible for them to gather on their own. This information, along with the Christmas Bird Count, Project FeederWatch and eBird give researchers a much better understanding of the broad implications of climate change, migration pattern changes, and biodiversity for bird populations around the globe.
Weather permitting, Loz will also be taking interested visitors into the Reist Sanctuary to learn more about spotting and identifying woodland birds.
Refreshments will be served.
Free and open to the public.
