CHRISTMAS BIRD COUNT
Join us for third annual Big Cypress Christmas Bird Count on Sunday, December 18, 2016. Last year we had about 85 species and we think we can top that this year! We will be meeting at the Big Cypress Swamp Welcome Center at 7:00 am. From there we will plan to split into teams and head into different areas of the preserve and parts just outside of it. If you would like to be a part of our count, please register with us by contacting the count organizer or call the Big Cypress Swamp Welcome Center at 239-695-4758.
