Join us for the 23rd annual Great Backyard Bird Count! Become a citizen scientist by helping to count birds. Anyone can participate–count for as little or as long as you wish! Record the birds you see through the windowed Wildlife Observation Room and/or on guided hikes, and take home a Citizen Scientist button! Champaign County Audubon Society members will be available to answer questions and provide instruction in bird identification. Dress for the weather, and bring binoculars if you have them or borrow a pair at the nature center. Free activity stations will also be available.
