The Great Backyard Bird Count

2/12/2021 to 2/15/2021

Event Description

Blue-winged Teal

For the last couple of years we have partnered with the Ormond Beach Environmental Discovery center and conducted a fun event with games and prizes and guided walks and opportunities to get up close to birds in Central Park. This year presents challenges and the park event has been canceled...but you can still participate. The focus of the event is in its name - Backyard. There are lots of suggestions on how to and we are here to help. The official count runs February 12 - 15, 2021.

Here are a couple of links to get you started. As we get closer to the event, there may be more information posted, so please check in for the scoop.
