2016 marks the 116th year of the National Audubon's Christmas Bird Count! Join in the world's largest and longest-running Citizen Science program this winter!
For three weeks each winter, people across the United States and Canada work together to take a 'snapshot' of all the birds in North America. With a formal protocol in place anyone can participate in adding to this huge and powerful scientific data set. The Christmas Bird Count (CBC) is preformed at over 2,300 sites each year and GEAS helps count six of those sites.
After the Boise Count all the birders are welcome to regroup for dinner and share their stories from the day and tally up how many birds and species were seen!
To participate this year check the calendar for dates and further information.
Learn More about CBC and why it's important for birds.
