The Christmas Bird Count is a yearly census to track overwintering bird populations. Come join us to learn all about this important Citizen Science event and bird identification! We will go on a Christmas count-style guided bird walk. This event is geared towards kids and their families, but everyone is welcome to attend. If you are already a bird lover, consider bringing along a young friend or family member and “fledging” a new birder!

Hot chocolate and cookies will be served after the count.

What to bring

  • This is primarily an outdoor event so remember to dress for the weather.
  • There is no potable water at the Arboretum so a small backpack with snacks and a water bottle are recommended.
  • Don’t forget your binoculars!
