Devoted birders can visit Metro Parks to take part in the world’s longest running citizen science project. The Audubon Christmas Bird Counts are now in their 120th year and six Metro Parks are hosting counts between December 14 and 31.
This massive bird census allows the National Audubon Society and other birding organizations to track bird populations and guide conservation efforts. The bird counts are conducted within geographic circles of about 15 miles in diameter. We hope to see you at one or more of the Metro Parks counts below:
