Great Backyard Bird Count in Local Schools

The Sassafras Audubon Society started working on the Great Backyard Bird Count project with local elementary schools in 2014. The Great Backyard Bird Count itself has been around since 1998 and was started by the Cornell Lab of Ornithology and the National Audubon Society. From February 12th through 15th, people of all ages from different locations across the globe are invited to report the birds they see. The only requirement is that they collect data for at least 15 minutes during the count.
