birdwatcherGlen Canyon National Recreation Area is currently recruiting volunteers for the Audubon Christmas Bird Count on January 5, 2015. During this annual citizen-science event new birders will be paired with more experienced individuals, making this a great way to learn about the birds of Glen Canyon.

The event begins at 7:30 a.m. and lasts until approximately 4:00 p.m. Volunteers will meet at park headquarters in Page, Arizona located at 691 Scenic View Drive (off of Highway 89), to sign in and receive their location assignments. Volunteers will have the opportunity to survey birds in a variety of land and water-based locations. Birdwatchers should be prepared for exposure to winter weather conditions during this outdoor event. Please bring warm clothing, lunch, water, and birding equipment such as binoculars and a bird guide book if possible.

Holiday traditions abound this time of year, and the long-standing tradition of the Audubon Christmas Bird Count has supported science for 115 years. Participants offer significant contributions to science and bird conservation during this global count. Additionally, free commemorative t-shirts will be provided to volunteers by the Glen Canyon Natural History Association.
