“Hanging Around” by William Lunsford

Join GARNA for the Audubon’s 119th Christmas Bird Count! The 2018 Salida Christmas Bird Count is Saturday, December 15, 2018. The event started in 1900 as an alternative to the holiday tradition of shooting birds. This is now the longest running citizen science project in the world. The Salida Count started in 2003 and covers a 15-mile diameter circle. The Salida Count is sponsored by Colorado Parks and Wildlife and the GARNA Birding Club both assisting to provide lunch for the volunteers. To read more about the Christmas Bird Count, click here.
