2018 Christmas Bird Count at Bryce Canyon National Park
The 2018 Christmas Bird Count will be held on Saturday, December 29th at Bryce Canyon National Park. The event is free, and will begin at 8:30 a.m. with hot drinks and pastries in the Bryce Canyon Visitor Center. Beginners will be paired with experienced birders, and groups will be provided with everything needed to conduct the count within the fifteen-mile radius assigned to the park. Following the morning bird count, a hot lunch and souvenir t-shirt will be provided back at the Visitor Center, thanks to the Bryce Canyon Natural History Association. Currently, the park is looking for volunteers to help with the 2018 count. If you are interested in participating, please contact Ranger Peter Densmore by phone at 435-834-4744 or by e-mail at [email protected] Those who volunteer will receive free park admission. Additionally those in the local area who would like to contribute data by counting from their home feeders are invited to contact the park as well. Additional information can also be obtained by visiting the park’s website at www.nps.gov/brca, or by calling 435-834-4744.
