Fair Meadows Christmas Bird Count
December 19 @ 9:30 am – 3:30 pm
Fair Meadows Sanctuary and State Natural Area is home to a wonderful diversity of habitats and birds, including in winter! The annual Christmas Bird Count is a great citizen science project that involves meeting other enthusiastic birders and helping collect important data about birds at the same time!
Penny and Gary Shackelford, resident managers of Fair Meadows, have been tallying birds at the sanctuary since the early 2000’s. This year, they are offering a fun Fair Meadows Christmas Bird Count! They are looking for 12 experienced birders to walk in groups of four to count birds between 9:30 am and 3:30 pm. Participants are invited to a mid-day break in the house for chili and socializing.
There will be quite a bit of hiking (3+ miles), possibly through snow.
