The citizen-science Christmas Bird Count will be the program topic at Thursday’s meeting of the Black Hills Audubon Society.
This year, for the 114th time, members of Audubon chapters and other volunteers will brave the weather to conduct the Christmas Bird Count. These citizen scientists help assess the health of bird populations, predict trends and guide conservation action.
The program will look back at the history of the count and serve as inspiration for the chapter’s count Dec. 15.
The meeting will be held at First Christian Church, 701 Franklin Street SE, Olympia. A social hour begins at 7 p.m. with the program starting at 7:30 p.m.
