Join us for the 121st Audubon Christmas Bird Count!

Every year, thousands of people contribute their sightings to the National Audubon Society's Christmas Bird Count. This year, the observation day for the Greene County count circle is Saturday, December 19, 2020.

There are two ways that you can participate in this worldwide citizen science project:

1. You can bird from home!
  • First, verify that your location is within the Greene County count circle.
  • To record and submit your data, download the bird checklist and Count Summary Report form.
  • Then, simply choose a window of time on Saturday, December 19, to observe the birds in your yard.
  • After you have recorded your data and filled out your Count Summary Report, email a copy of both documents to by the end of the day on Saturday, December 19.

2. You can go birding with BCWA!

We will be fielding several teams to canvas various locations within the Beaver Creek wetland corridor. Sign-up here. Spots are limited, and reservations are required. To keep our volunteers safe, teams will be limited to 6 participants and masks will be required at all times.

We're working on something big!

Starting Winter 2020, together with our partners, we will begin building a new 15-mile trail that traverses the entirity of the Beaver Creek wetlands corridor.

Phase 1 is ramping up now. Read all about the Spotted Turtle Trail Project and learn more about our conservation work and how you can help make this vision a reality!

COVID Update

Enjoy the wetlands SAFELY

September 5, 2020 -- All public BCWA properties are open. We have been working with a decreased volunteer load to keep our boardwalks and trails maintained during the COVID-19 pandemic. We encourage our community to come out and visit the wetlands.

It's good to get outside!

While enjoying our outdoor spaces, please observe the following guidelines:

  • Maintain a distance of at least 6 FEET from people not not a part of your household. Use the pull-outs along the boardwalk when passing others.

  • Bring a face covering with you and wear it when you cannot maintain a safe distance from people not a part of your household.

  • Stay home if you or anyone in your household have symptoms of COVID-19.
