Halifax River Audubon will partner with the

Ormond Beach Environmental Discovery Center for the

Great Backyard Bird Count

This an event for the whole family featuring bird walks, games, crafts, exhibits and more focusing on the birds in Central Park. There will be a field book challenge where participants fill out the books and get their very own rubber ducky! Look through binoculars and spotting scopes to see birds up close and personal. While we are having all of this fun, we will be documenting the birds in the park and entering our observations in a global database.
