Date: December 5, 2019

Tens of thousands of volunteers throughout the Americas take part in an adventure that has become a family tradition among generations. Families and students, birders and scientists, armed with binoculars, bird guides and check lists go out on an annual mission – often before dawn. 
Become a citizen scientist who will brave the snow cold or rain to take part in the Christmas Bird Count. Help make an enormous contribution to conservation. Audubon and other organizations will use the data collected in this longest running wildlife census to assess the health of bird populations – and to guide conservation action.
The Indiana Dunes National Park will be facilitating this count on Friday, December 27, in the “INDW Birding Circle.” The circle is located in the northeast part of Lake and the northwest part of Porter County. 
To learn more about this event or to register for it, contact park ranger Christine Gerlach. She can be reached by email or call 219-395-1885.
