Nature Study, Out and About, Unit Studies

The Great Backyard Bird Count 2012

The Great Backyard Bird count is a fun way  to incorporate nature study into your program and make a contribution to science at the same time!

The Great Backyard Bird Count is an annual four-day event that engages bird watchers of all ages in counting birds to create a real-time snapshot of where the birds are across the continent. Anyone can participate, from beginning bird watchers to experts. It takes as little as 15 minutes on one day, or you can count for as long as you like each day of the event.

The Great Backyard Bird Count takes place February 17-20, 2012. Why not use the Adventurer Feathered Friends award and the Pathfinder Birds and Birds-Advanced honors to turn the bird count into a fun unit study?
