Join the Great Backyard Bird Count at Fort Clatsop
Join us at Fort Clatsop for the 23rd annual Great Backyard Bird Count (GBBC) February 14 through 17. To participate in this citizen science opportunity, anyone in the world can count birds at any location on one or more days of the count and enter their sightings at gbbc.birdcount.org. The information gathered by tens of thousands of individuals helps track bird population changes on a massive scale. The GBBC is a joint project of the Cornell Lab of Ornithology, the National Audubon Society, Birds Canada, and Wild Birds Unlimited.

The Lewis and Clark Expedition is known for blazing a trail west and recording discoveries of plants, animals and people along the way. Although there are more than 1,000,000 words in the journal entries of the Expedition, many questions linger about details of the expedition including, “What about York?” Today York, the man enslaved to William Clark and member of the Expedition, is the subject of much fascination and admiration. In-depth research into York’s life however is recent and limited.
