Event Details:

Mississippi River State Park is all about citizen science and the Great Backyard Bird count is an ideal project for individuals to enjoy nature and help actual wildlife biologists with research.  All across the country, participants will be counting all the birds they see in order to obtain a real time "snapshot" of where the birds are across the continent.  You can help too, by participating in one of Mississippi River State Park’s bird walks this weekend.  All skill levels and abilities are welcome.  The park interpreter will be there to help you with identification and instructions on how the count is conducted. Bring binoculars if you can, or we have some to share.
