December’s theme is ‘Family Christmas Bird Count’. Did you know that every winter since 1900, scientists and birders alike have gathered together in an effort to count birds? We invite your family to join us for a morning of citizen science, observing the birds around Barr Lake and discussing the impact we can have on understanding bird populations.
