BEAVERCREEK — Join Greene County Parks & Trails to search for 100 bird species within one day in Greene County beginning at 6:30 a.m. Friday, May 2 starting at the Narrows Reserve Nature Center, 2575 Indian Ripple Road.
Join a naturalist for the day’s search that will end when the group runs out of areas to search. Residents may also sponsor a group or an individual naturalist by pledging money for each species they see, e.g., 25 cents per species. The program is designed as a fundraiser with all proceeds being used to purchase children’s’ nature field guides to get young naturalists excited about the outdoors.
“This should be a great day for bird lovers of all ages,” says Greene County Parks & Trails Chief Naturalist Cris Barnett. “We encourage everyone to join us at any time during the day. If you need to know where we are located at a specific time, follow the day’s adventure on Facebook or Twitter. You can also call our park agency headquarters at 937-562-6440 to join the group later in the day. We hope to both raise funds for our children’s programming and have an exciting birding day.”
The program is free but donations are accepted. For more information, call Greene County Parks & Trails at 937-562-6440 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
