  • 70th Annual Christmas Bird Count

    Culture and entertainment Nature Sports and recreation
    Location(s): Point Pelee National Park
    Cost: Participants receive free entry to the park for the day.

    Point Pelee National Park will be holding its 70th Annual Christmas Bird Count on Monday, December 21, and you are invited to participate. Started in 1900, the Christmas Bird Count is the longest running citizen science program in North America. Each year, volunteers from across the continent gather to count as many individuals and species as they can during their designated count period.

    Volunteers will spend the entire day in the field, looking for birds, learning about the habitats they use in winter, and joining with others for some fun along the way. No experience is necessary, but participants will be expected to spend most of the day outside. At the end of the day, participants will gather at the Visitor Centre for a chili dinner, hosted by the Friends of Point Pelee, and we’ll compile the results of the day’s effort.

    Participants must register by Friday, December 18, 2020. Call 519-322-2365 ext. 0 or email us at pc.pelee.info.pc@canada.ca to register or for more information.
