Hopewell, VA, Hopewell, VA
Participate in one of the great success stories in citizen science. Around the country birders will be getting out to conduct winter counts of birds. These long running efforts allow scientists and the public to monitor the status of bird populations. The beginnings of what is now known as the Hopewell Christmas Bird Count, started in 1929. Since 1944 the count has run consecutively every year and 2014 will mark the 70th straight count! All skill levels are welcome.
