This is an OUTDOOR event. Please dress for the weather to spend approximately two hours outside. There will be an indoor space available to warm up and for young kids, but the majority of the event will take place outside.

This event is FREE.

The exact length of the count will be weather dependent. Hot chocolate & coffee will be provided. Binoculars and field guides will be provided for those who do not have their own.
