Christmas Bird Count needs YOU

Plans are well underway for this winter's county-wide Bird Count, and Griffith Park's participation needs your help. The 2010 count is scheduled throughout the county on January 3rd.

The Christmas Bird Count has taken place since the 1930s and is a source for some of the best historical bird count data in our area. We can't think of a better way to start the new year!

Dan Cooper, of Cooper Ecological Monitoring Inc is organizing this winter's count and is looking for coordinators.  Cooper was instrumental in the completion of a Griffith Park Wildlife study after the 2007 Griffith Park Fire, and is currently involved in the Griffith Park Natural History Survey.

Please go to Dan's web site for more information on how to volunteer as well as bird lists, and maps of the count area.
