Maybe you’ve always wanted to help a scientific cause. Maybe you’re passionate about doing your part toward the greater good in Nature. Or maybe you just enjoy spending time with the birds. Become an official Citizen Scientist by joining us this February for the Great Backyard Bird Count, a worldwide count coordinated by the Cornell Lab of Ornithology and the National Audubon Society. For more information, visit http://gbbc.birdcount.org.
Geauga Park District’s counting will be conducted at Swine Creek Reservation on Friday, Feb. 15, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., and at The West Woods Nature Center on Friday and Saturday, Feb. 15 and 16, from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.
To enhance your fun, why not bring your camera? You never know when you’ll get that magical shot that can be entered into the 2019 Great Backyard Bird Count Photo Contest – or framed for your wall. Registration is not required to count with us. The West Woods Nature Center is located at 9465 Kinsman Road (Route 87) in Russell Township and is fully wheelchair/stroller accessible.
In addition to its wall of giant windows always bustling with hungry birds and other wildlife, The West Woods Nature Center’s hands-on exhibitry, Discovery Room, art displays, live critters and Tree Tops Nature Store make it a great place to visit any cold winter day 10 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Call 440-286-9516 with questions.
