Great Backyard Bird Count at Wildwood Park

The Great Backyard Bird Count is a community science program developed by Cornell University’s Lab of Ornithology that relies on people everywhere to provide a “snapshot” of local bird populations during one weekend in February. Our focus is to help people of all ages to identify those species which visit our feeders in the winter. This is a chance for beginners and well-seasoned birders to enjoy winter birds together from the warmth of the indoors.

See details in our Programs and Field Trips brochure and on our Birding page.

Critical Connections — Denali by George Gress

George Gress participates in the Critical Connections project which is seeking to learn more about the migration of birds that breed in Denali National Park, and to connect Denali with the places from where its visitors come. This evening, we will learn about the project and the technology and field work used to track migrating birds across the world. George is a Fire Specialist/Land Steward for the Pennsylvania Chapter of The Nature Conservancy. He works from the Acopian Preserve office and assists with all aspects of the management of TNC’s preserves in Pennsylvania, including prescribed fire and managing the chapter’s bog turtle program. An avid photographer, many of his images have appeared in TNC’s chapter and national publications.
