Great Backyard Bird Count and Matinee

The Lenawee Birders Club would like to invite the public to join us for a fun day of birding and a movie matinee on Sunday, February 19th at Hidden Lake Gardens.  We will be participating in the Great Backyard Bird Count (GBBC)- a joint project by the Cornell Lab of Ornithology and Audubon Society.  The GBBC is an annual event that engages bird watchers of all ages in counting birds to create a real-time snapshot of where the birds are across the continent.  Anyone can participate, from beginning bird watchers to experts.  It takes as little as 15 minutes or you can count for as long as you like.  It’s free, fun and easy; and it helps the birds.  The Lenawee Birders Club will lead a bird walk/count at Hidden Lake Gardens starting at 10:00 am from the Visitor Center.  Following the bird count, we will relax and be entertained by watching the movie “The Big Year” starring Steve Martin, Jack Black and Owen Wilson in the Visitor Center.  The movie will begin at noon.
The event is FREE to the public and admission will be waived for those attending the bird walk and movie.
