The Great Backyard Bird Count
Saturday, February 16, 2019 10:00 AM - 12:30 PM
Mine Kill State Park
(518) 827-6111

Join birding enthusiast Henry Wagner of SUNY Cobleskill and Park Naturalists for a family-friendly introduction to the Great Backyard Bird Count. On this outdoor foray, beginning birders will learn all about the Count's history, methodology and contribution to conservation science, and learn how to conduct a bird count in their own backyard. Afterwards, field parties will re-group at the Park Office to compare notes. In case of inclement weather, this program may be cancelled. If in doubt, please call the Park Office at (518) 827-8690. For more information about the count, go to gbbc.birdcount.org. Meet at the Park Office.
