Christmas Bird Count Kickoff
Come join us for our Christmas Bird Count Kickoff on Saturday December 11th from 9:00 AM - 11:00 AM!
We will be learning about the Christmas Bird Count and winter birding, creating allergy-free bird seed wreaths, and then wrapping it up with a winter bird walk on the refuge.
The educational and the bird seed wreath portions of the program will be located inside the Visitor Center. All federal buildings, including the Visitor Center, require face masks regardless of vaccination status.
For the outside portion of the program, please dress appropriately and plan accordingly, including warm clothes, coat, gloves, hat and warm shoes. We will be providing binoculars, but please feel free to bring your own.
This program is open to adults and families ages 10+. The program will be capped at 15 participants, please sign-up here.
Please meet at Assabet River National Wildlife Refuge's Visitor Center no later than 9 AM to ensure participation in the program.
