The Great Backyard Bird Count is a yearly citizen science project that happens all over the world and this year it is from February 17th-20th. You can participate anywhere from your own backyard to one of our nature preserves! Use this training to learn the methods and then gain volunteer hours by participating in that count at on of our nature preserves!


Current Mask Policy: TLC seeks to build a supportive, mask-friendly environment in all collaborations with staff and the public. Please wear a mask if you are not vaccinated, or if that makes you feel most comfortable. We will have masks available if you would like to wear one during an event. We also encourage those eligible to be vaccinated to get their Covid-19 vaccine and booster shot. If you are experiencing any Covid-related symptoms, please stay home and attend a program another day. Our top priority is to create a safe environment for our community. Thank you for your understanding.
