Christmas Bird Count
- Date: 12/15/2018 (all day)
Join Dallas County Conservation Board and Raccoon River Watershed Association for a day of birding with a purpose. Each year local bird clubs gather around the Christmas holiday to take a snapshot of what birds are in their area. This information is sent to the National Audubon Society which looks at the long-term health of bird populations over the last 100 years. Participants are divided into groups, each with an experienced birder in a different location in the county. We usually hike in the morning and drive the area in the afternoon. It does not matter if you are a beginner or experienced birder, the day is filled with beauty and opportunities for learning. Registration (515-465-3577) is required for this free program.Return to full list >>
