Community Science events like the Great Backyard Bird Count are important sources of information as we look at global warming and its effect on nature. The next Great Backyard Bird Count is February 17-20, 2023, and takes place all across America in thousands of communities. Bird watchers of all ages count birds to create a real-time snapshot of where birds are. Here at Lewis Ginter Botanical Garden, we’ll be counting birds (and you can help too!) on Feb 18th from 9 a.m. to noon. All are welcome to participate in this exciting community event!
Grab your binoculars, drop by the Lora Robins Library for a checklist, and meet some organizations that promote birding. Be a part of this community science project; children can assist, too, and are welcome to help with a parent.
