Great Backyard Bird Count
February 15, 2020 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm MST
The Great Backyard Bird Count was established in 1998 by the Cornell Lab of Ornithology and the National Audubon Society to use citizen scientists to gather data on wild birds and contribute to an online database in near real-time! Join the Bird Conservancy of the Rockies educators as we spend the morning birding at Barr Lake SP and gathering data for the Great Backyard Bird Count! All ages and abilities are welcome, and the event is free. Please RSVP to [email protected] or phone 303-659-4348 ext 49. Thank you!
