Great Backyard Bird Count #GBBC 2020

Looking for a fabulous STEM activity? The Great Backyard Bird Count is this weekend, February 14-17, 2020.


The Great Backyard Bird Count is one of our favorite child-friendly citizen science projects. All you and your family need to do is count the birds you see over 15 minutes and then report your finding via the e-Bird app. Although it is called “backyard,” you may count birds anywhere they are found, including parks, preserves, or fields. There is plenty of information and instructions about getting started at the website.

Are you a bird photographer? There is also a photo contest.
