Christmas Bird Count
The annual Christmas Bird Count, sponsored by the National Audubon Society, began in 1900 as a way of using all willing and able bodies as a means to get outside and count wintering birds. The Ridges has participated in the Christmas Bird Count since the mid-60’s and coordinates the efforts of local participants who volunteer their time to head out in the field. There is no need to be an expert birder to participate. Many Christmas Birders tally species at their bird feeder, from the warm comfort of their homes. Others will travel searching Door County’s shorelines, roadsides and forests.
We will display the bird count data in the Cook-Albert Fuller Nature Center for the month of December. For additional information on the Christmas Bird Count, contact Ridges’ Land Manager Matt Peter at 920-829-2802 or email@example.com.
