The Museum will be participating in the 17th annual Great Backyard Bird Count (GBBC). The GBBC is a national bird count that is led by the Cornell Lab of Orthnithology, National Audubon Society, and Bird Studies Canada. This program will introduce guests to the GBBC and how they can participate in this fun citizen science project. Guests are encouraged to dress for the weather and bring their own binoculars for the outdoor portion of the program. Children ages 7 and up are welcome.
