THE GREAT BACKYARD BIRD COUNT

FEB. 12th THROUGH 15th , 2010

This year's Great Backyard Bird Count (GBBC) will be here before we know it! We hope many of our members will participate this year. The GBBC is scheduled for President’s Day Weekend (Feb 12th through 15th).

The GBBC is a great activity for families that's both free and educational, while also getting kids outside. In a time when everyone is cutting back on their expenses, the GBBC makes the perfect stay-cation activity. Counts can be conducted in your own backyard, or a local park or forest preserve. The GBBC is led by the National Audubon Society & the Cornell Lab of Ornithology.

It provides an opportunity for people of all ages to learn about birds and environment we share. Visit www.birdcount.org to view this year's press release for the GBBC, and to get further info on participating in it. As Prairie Woods has done in the past, anyone who is not able to access a computer to submit their data, worksheets will be available at the January 21st meeting for members to complete and return to PWA for entry.

Please frequent our web site at http://prairiewoodsaudubon.org/ to get further details on any GBBC event(s) being held/sponsored by Prairie Woods Audubon.
