Great Backyard Bird Count

The Old-Growth Bottomland Forest Research and Education Center at Congaree National Park and the Friends of Congaree Swamp are hosting several birding programs as part of the 13th annual Great Backyard Bird Count. This event is an international effort to identify and count birds across the continent on February 12-15, 2010. Count results present a “snapshot” of bird populations across North America and allow scientists to monitor changes through the years.

No prior experience is required to participate in these free programs, which are open to all visitors ages 5 and up. Children under 12 should be accompanied by an adult. Please register in advance by calling the Harry Hampton Visitor Center at 803.776.4396, ext. 0, or just stop by the front desk. Participants should plan to meet at the Harry Hampton Visitor Center fifteen minutes prior to the start of each program. Participants should wear comfortable, closed-toed shoes and weather-appropriate clothing. A water bottle and snack are also recommended. Visitors and volunteers are encouraged to bring binoculars.
