Ticket: The Great Backyard Bird Count
Meet with birding expert Dr. Ernie Marshall and Mrs. Nancy Bray to get a lesson on bird ID and participate in your own bird count in your back yard during The Audobon Society’s Great Backyard Bird Count. This event is free and appropriate for all ages.

The Great Backyard Bird Count (GBBC) is a free, fun, and easy event that engages bird watchers of all ages in counting birds to create a real-time snapshot of bird populations. Participants are asked to count birds for as little as 15 minutes (or as long as they wish) on one or more days of the four-day event and report their sightings online at birdcount.org. Anyone can take part in the Great Backyard Bird Count, from beginning bird watchers to experts, and you can participate from your backyard, or anywhere in the world.
