  • Christmas Bird Count 2019

    Calling all citizen scientists!!

    Audubon's 119th Christmas Bird Count will be conducted between the dates of Friday, December 14, 2019 through Saturday, January 5, 2020.  

    As part of that count, the Nature Center will host an "Open Porch" for backyard birders – an opportunity to drop by the porch of the cabin by the pond and join others in observing and identifying the birds that are common to Closter throughout the winter.  

    These birds are bright bits of outdoor color, energy, and activity, while we stay snug in our homes. Bring binoculars if you have them.  We have some to loan, as well as a chance to look through a powerful telescope as if the bird is sitting on your hand!  
    Hot beverages will be available to keep you warm.  Stop by and get to know these perky wonders of winter survival.

    WHEN: Saturday, December 14th from 10am-1pm
