Save Barnegat Bay is hosting the annual Browns Woods Great Back Yard Bird Count at the Barnegat Bay EcoCenter.

In addition our Board Member and avid birder Kevin Knutsen will be leading the data collection effort for Cornell Lab of Ornithology. See below for more info about the national event. We will have a limited number of binoculars for borrow on the day of the event.

“Launched in 1998 by the Cornell Lab of Ornithology and National Audubon Society, the Great Backyard Bird Count was the first online citizen-science project to collect data on wild birds and to display results in near real-time.” Learn more http://gbbc.birdcount.org/
