Take part in a holiday tradition and enjoy an afternoon along the trails of the Animas River as you take part in the Audubon Christmas Bird Count! The Riverside Nature Center in Farmington, New Mexico will be part of this nationwide project where volunteers aid in scientific research that has been carried out for over 100 years. Spend part or all of the day with other birders counting the birds, common or rare, as observed in their wintering grounds. The area surrounding the Riverside Nature Center (Berg Park, Animas River Walk Trail and Animas Park) has been included in this study for more than 20 years. Participants will conduct the bird count while walking the trails and exploring the parks, while others will count as they observe the feeding stations. This event is open to beginning and experienced birders.
