February 2014 GBBC Jennings will offer two events during the Great Backyard Bird Count. In its 17th year, the GBBC is hosted by the National Audubon Society and Cornell Lab of Ornithology in partnership with Bird Studies Canada (http://www.birdsource.org/gbbc/). Participants in these events will learn from Jennings’ staff the basics of bird identification, observe and count birds at the feeders, and be introduced to the use of the GBBC website for submitting data and obtaining information. They will be encouraged to use their new skills to observe birds and submit their own data at home. Representatives of the Bartramian Audubon Society will be on hand to provide assistance. -
February 14, 2014-Friday A program for homeschooling families will feature hands-on discovery centers and allow parents and their children to work together to learn about, observe, and count birds for the GBBC. The program is designed for ages 5 and older, with a registration fee and limited enrollment. -
February 15, 2014-Saturday A workshop and observation session will be offered for any individuals, ages 12 and older, who share an interest in birds. This event is particularly recommended for teachers and youth leaders who want to involve their students in citizen science projects. Pre-registration will be required. Additional details and registration for these events will be available later through DCNR’s Calendar of Events at http://www.apps.dcnr.state.pa.us/Calendar/list.asp.
