The count, which provides a snapshot of bird distribution to help scientists understand any changes, is coordinated by the Cornell Lab of Ornithology. The 23rd annual event will take place Feb. 14-17, and the Gardens will host and submit its own count from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Feb. 15.
Residents will be able to take guided bird tours throughout the morning. Please note you should bring your binoculars. A story time for children will be hosted by West Cobb Public Library and will include a scavenger hunt and crafts. For a separate fee, you’ll also be able to participate in a build-your-own bluebird house activity.
