Christmas Bird Count

Attention birders of all levels!

Saturday, December 16, 2017 @ 9 am-4 pm

Help count birds wintering at Wehr! You’ll meet some of the most talented and persistent birders in the area as we count birds in the most important and longest-running bird count. This count is held throughout the country and provides information on long–term trends. Our results will be submitted to the Wisconsin Society of Ornithology. Bring field guides and binoculars if you’d like. A map of Wehr’s boundaries will be available for each participant. There is no charge to participate in this event, but please pre-register by December 15.
