Great Backyard Bird Count

Join a ranger in this nationwide citizen-science project to count the birds in our backyard for the GBBC.  Hammocks Beach is a great location to see several bird species- from the ones that hide in the woods to those that swim our waters.  We have a limited supply of binoculars and field guides to use; however you can bring your own if you have them!

Meet at the Visitor Center.
