Great Backyard Bird Count at Pottstown Riverfront Park
The Great Backyard Bird Count (GBBC) runs for four days between February 18th and 21st. Join Valley Forge Audubon Society leaders Patty and John Werth to learn more about how you can participate in the GBBC and discover what fascinating birds are in your own backyard.
This outing will include a 30-minute stationary program focusing on bird ID and how to report your bird sightings if you want to participate on your own at a different location. Then those interested will venture into the field for an approximately 90 minute guided birding field trip. The leaders will submit the list for the group.
No prior knowledge of birds or birding is necessary to attend. These programs are open to all ages, although we ask that children under 18 be accompanied by an adult. If you have binoculars, bring them, and dress for the weather. A notebook may also be handy to record your observations.
Masks are not required for this outdoor program, although VFAS encourages all participants to be fully vaccinated and asymptomatic to attend.
