The Big Oaks NWR Annual Bird Count

will be held on

Saturday, December 21st, 2019

 

The Big Oaks National Wildlife Refuge calls upon volunteer birders and nature enthusiasts in Indiana to participate in Audubon’s longest-running wintertime tradition, the annual Christmas Bird Count (CBC).  Volunteer birders of all skill levels are needed to count birds.  Volunteers may sign up to count birds for a half day (until noon, or noon to sunset) or all day.  We will meet at 8:00 am at the Big Oaks NWR office.  The Big Oaks Conservation Society, a not-for-profit refuge support group, will provide lunch for volunteers at the refuge office. If you are interested in participating in the December 21st Big Oaks NWR count, contact the refuge at 812-273-0783. Weather for the Christmas bird count can be variable, but warm and/or waterproof clothing is recommended. Lunch will be provided and all are welcome!
