Birding 4 Bucks & Camp Reunion!
March 16, 2019 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm UTC+0
Join us for a morning of birding with expert mentors and raise funds for Summer Bird Camp scholarships! Birders of all abilities (including first-timers!) may participate in the count. Ask friends, family, neighbors and community members to sponsor your birding. Sponsorship can be based on the number of species seen (ex. $1 per species), or it can be a flat amount (ex $25 for the day).
Stick around afterwards for a Camp Reunion! More details to come.

Every year, our friends at Rocky Mountain Raptor Program in Fort Collins, CO receive over 300 injured, sick and orphaned birds. They are nursed back to health and more than 80% of them are released back into the wild. Last fall, bird banders at our Barr Lake State Park station enjoyed the opportunity to meet one of the recipients of their kindness in person!
We had a banner year at our banding station at Wildcat Hills State Recreation Area in Scotts Bluff County, Nebraska. 2020 proved to be our busiest season there to date. We set new highs for total banded birds and added several new species that had never been banded there before. All of this was while simultaneously adapting to meet health and safety guidelines that enabled visitors to experience bird banding firsthand in a safe way.
