Date and Time-
Each February, for four days, the world comes together for the love of birds. We invite people to spend time in their favorite places watching and counting as many birds as they can find and reporting them to us. These observations help scientists better understand global bird populations before one of their annual migrations. Launched in 1998 by the Cornell Lab of Ornithology and National Audubon Society, the Great Backyard Bird Count (GBBC) was the first online citizen-science project (also referred to as community science) to collect data on wild birds and to display results in near real time. Local Audubon club president, Tony Brusate, will discuss the event and prep attendees to participate. Cost: Free, but must register in advance to reserve a seat.
· Sign up early for classes to avoid being turned away because a class is full.
· ALL classes, including the “Free” ones, are “Pre-registration” only. If there is a fee for the class, the fee must be paid to hold your space.
· If you need to cancel, you must do so two (2) weeks prior to the class time to receive a refund.
· Plants/seeds not picked up at the Fayette County Extension Office by 3:00pm on the Friday of the week the class is held will be donated. (Unless otherwise stated in the course description.)
