The Dunwoody Nature Center will be offering classes for adults and children to participate in this year’s Great Backyard Bird Count. Birding lessons offered at the Nature Center will feature information about species identification, the importance of the bird count, basic bird observation and how to use the Great Backyard Bird Count website. Several computers will be available at the Nature Center so that participants can enter their data into the global database.
After the introductory presentation, participants are encouraged to use the 22 acres of Dunwoody Park to do their bird count. There are several prime viewing areas throughout the park including the tree house pavilion, education building, gazebo, Wildcat Creek and miles of trails. Participants are welcome to come back to the park throughout the weekend to continue their bird count or may take the information learned from the class home with them to continue their count at home.
As part of the Nature Center’s mission to educate children, families, and adults of all ages about the natural world and our place in it, this event will be FREE and open to the public, but registration is required.
