Bird Count

2/15/2019 to 2/17/2019 | Bennett Spring State Park | Lebanon, MO

The Bennett Spring Nature Center will be open to offer warmth and bird information to visitors from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.  Park staff encourages visitors to participate in the annual citizen-science bird count project supported by the National Audubon Society.  There are several bald eagles that visit the park regularly.  Enjoy one of the six trails within the park while documenting the amount of different kinds of birds seen. Several of the park’s trails have the special designation and signage of being “Great Missouri Birding Trails.” After completing your bird count, stop by the nature center to warm up and add your information to a group tally board. Various taxidermy birds and song bird nests will be on display.  Park staff will be present with identification books to assist in the learning process of how to identify unknown birds. Bring a camera and enter your Bennett Spring State Park bird photo in the on-line contest at http://gbbc.birdcount.org/.
