Calling all bird enthusiasts, citizen scientists, and folks wanting to be a part of the longest-running citizen science census in the world! On Tuesday, December 18, 2018 from 7:00 AM to 6:00 PM, the annual Christmas Bird Count will be hosted by the Kilauea Point National Wildlife Refuge. The Kilauea Point NWR is one of the best places to view wildlife, and home to some of the largest populations of nesting seabirds.
This event will occur no matter the weather, and is an all-day birding extravaganza that has been contributing to the conservation of birds for over 100 years. See flyer below for more details, but be prepared to fill out a volunteer service agreement form. No experience necessary!
