Birding “Big Sit” at the Hassayampa River Preserve (Registration Required)

Would you like to learn more about birdwatching and community science? Join Ranger Eric for a “Big Sit” style bird count in the garden in front of the Visitor Center as we learn about birds and learn about community science, using eBird. Today is also part of the Great Backyard Bird Count sponsored by Cornell, which runs Feb. 16-19 this year (https://www.birdcount.org/). We will discuss basic bird identification tips and counting methods while we watch birds visiting the fruiting palms. Some binoculars are available to borrow. This program is geared towards all physical abilities and ages. There are a few benches in the garden, but we can also bring out extra chairs.

MEETING LOCATION: Picnic area behind Preserve Visitor Center at the beginning of the trails.

Limit 15 participants. To register, please call the Preserve Visitor Center at 602-506-2930 ext. 9 with your name, phone number, and number of people attending. If you find you cannot attend a program after you have registered, please call the Visitor Center ASAP so we may contact those on the waiting list. Registration for this program will close on Saturday, 2/17/24.
