Upcoming Nature Trips

Next weekend, December 15th and 16th, nearly every New York birding/nature organization will be participating with the annual Christmas Bird Count, rather than hosting their usual weekend trips. It's not too late to join a team and help find every bird within New York City's five borough. Whether you are a beginner or an experienced birder, every pair of eyes helps. It's a lot of fun and also contributes a tremendous amount of scientific data regarding the health of our bird populations and, ultimately, our environment. Here are the different area coordinators:
