The Sustainable Life Club is going to go bird watching this Saturday! As a part of the Great Backyard Bird Count, we will be spending about an hour outside counting how many birds we see. The purpose of the Great Backyard Bird Count is to create and record an annual estimation of the abundance and distribution of birds across the country. Each participant, or group of participants, will count the birds and then report the amount of birds they saw. The Great Backyard Bird Count is a simple and easy way for people across the country to get outside, see nature, and help contribute to a study.
We will be leading a bird count of our own on campus this Saturday 2/15 at 11:00 am. We will be meeting in the dining hall, then walking around campus counting birds until about 12:00. All are invited! By participating in the bird count, we hope to give students the opportunity to appreciate nature and be scientists, recording their observations in a natural setting.
