Backyard Adventure for Bird Lovers


Daily Green is reporting that this weekend is the 2009 Great Backyard Bird Count. A joint venture between Audubon and the Cornell Lab of Ornithology, the GBBC is a four-day event that calls on the public to help capture a snapshot of birds across the continent. Entertaining, educational and FREE, this project takes as much or as little time as you want to invest; anywhere from 15 minutes to the whole weekend. This could be a fun event for your Adventure Club -- maybe add a little side trip to Starbucks to help you rise with your feathered friends.

You can read Daily Green's article here or you can fly right on over to the GBBC's site here.
