2019 Lake Geneva – Christmas Bird Count

The Lakeland Audubon Society will hold its annual Christmas Bird Count on Saturday, December 21. The Christmas Bird Count (CBC) is a long-standing program of the National Audubon Society, with over 100 years of community science involvement. It is an early-winter bird census, where thousands of volunteers across the U.S., Canada, and many countries in the Western Hemisphere go out over a 24 hour period on one calendar day to count birds. The data collected by observers provides vital information on the long-term health and status of bird populations across North America. To participate, contact Kyle Cudworth through Our Contact Page or by Phone: (262) 245-6860. Participants will be meeting at the Lion’s Field House, in Williams Bay, at 5:00 p.m. on the 21st to eat dinner and go over the day’s sightings.
