Become a citizen scientist for the day and discover who might be showing their feathers by participating in River Legacy’s Great Backyard Bird Count FREE Family Festival on Saturday, Feb. 16.
River Legacy Living Science Center will lead guided bird counts and host a family-friendly festival as part of the 22nd annual Great Backyard Bird Count, a four-day global event sponsored by the National Audubon Society and the Cornell Lab of Ornithology that allows bird watchers from across the globe to count the birds they see from Feb. 15 through Feb. 18.
River Legacy’s FREE festival slated from 10 am to 2 pm on Saturday, Feb. 16 at the Science Center, 703 NW Green Oaks Blvd., will give participants a chance to be citizen scientists by contributing to a snapshot of bird distribution that can help Cornell scientists discover changes over the past 20 years.
