Help collect vital data on the bird population! Bring your binoculars, explore Hershey Gardens and count the birds for as little as 15 minutes - - or as long as you want. Participants will report their sightings online at birdcount.org. Each checklist submitted during the GBBC helps researchers at the Cornell Lab of Ornithology and the National Audubon Society learn more about how birds are doing, and how to protect them and the environment we share. Anyone can take part in the Great Backyard Bird Count, from beginning bird watchers to experts.
Forms and information will be available for participants in the Conservatory Welcome Pavilion during the four-day event. Participants will be placed into a drawing to win four tickets to Hershey Gardens for the 2019 season! No pre-registration required; included in admission. Free for members.
