Volunteers will record the number and species of birds they observe. That data is then compiled in a national database that can be used by scientists. Volunteers should bring lunch, snacks and dress accordingly for winter weather. 

This year, birders will gather at 9:00 a.m. the Visitor Center, and spend several hours exploring the park counting the birds. For more information about the annual count in the Farmington area, call the Riverside Nature Center at 505-599-1422.
