The Audubon Society of Western Pennsylvania will present Project Feederwatch at the Crooked Creek Environmental Learning Center, 142 Kerr Road, Ford City, on Sunday from 2 to 3 p.m.
Feederwatch is operated by the Cornell Lab of Ornithology, in partnership with the National Audubon Society, and is a fun winter-long survey of birds that visit feeders across North America. Participants will be prepared to be a successful FeederWatcher by going over the data collection process and backyard bird identification.
Feederwatch is a part of the Citizen Science Series. Admission is free thanks to a grant from Dominion Foundation, but donations are always welcome. Attendees will also take home a free bag of birdfeed to help get started.
The Crooked Creek Environmental Learning Center is about five miles south of Ford City next to Crooked Creek Park. It is a multiuse facility operated under the auspices of the Armstrong Educational Trust and is available year-round to organized groups and business for environmental education, workshops, meetings or retreats.
