The Great Backyard Bird Count is an annual event that engages bird watchers of all levels in counting birds and reporting their results to create a mid-winter snapshot of the numbers, kinds, and distribution of birds across the continent. If you would like to participate locally please join us at Sewickley Heights Borough Park (upper parking lot) from 9:00 to 11:00am and help us collect data. All ages and skill levels welcome. Bring your binoculars and dress warm! Program is free and open to the public. Fern Hollow will also be hosting a birding program for scouts and other kids. We will learn birding skills, take a hike through the meadow to learn about habitats, and meet live birds from Wildbird Recovery. There will be two sessions offered, one from 9:00-11:00am and the other from 1:00-3:00pm. Program is geared for children in 2nd-8th grade (kids will be grouped according to age). Cost is $7 per child and includes a Fern Hollow badge. RESERVATION REQUIRED. LARGE GROUPS ALLOWED. Please contact Susie Moffett at 412-741-6136 to reserve a spot for your child or scout troop. Program is open to the public.
