Naperville Park District’s Knoch Knolls Nature Center invites families and individuals to participate in the Great Backyard Bird Count and winter birds activities on Presidents’ Day on Monday, Feb. 17 from 10:00 a.m.-3:00 p.m. Visit the Nature Center, located at 320 Knoch Knolls Road, Naperville, to learn more about winter birds and to identify and record the birds you see. A naturalist will be on hand with binoculars and bird identification books to help guide kids and parents in their observation. No registration is necessary but at least one adult must attend with each family or group of children.

The data will be shared with researchers at the Cornell Lab of Ornithology and the National Audubon Society to learn more about how birds are doing and how to protect them. The official website for the event is located at gbbc.birdcount.org. In addition to the observations that will be made at Knoch Knolls Nature Center, any resident can join the count in their back yard and enter their results between February 14 and 17 on gbbc.birdcount.org or download the eBird mobile app.
