Christmas Bird Count with Grand Rapids Audubon Join the Grand Rapids Audubon Club for the annual Kent County Christmas Count. Birders of all skills are needed to cover the 15-mile range. Plan to arrive by 7:30 a.m. Field teams and local bird enthusiasts will depart from the Wittenbach/Wege Center at 8:00 a.m. returning around noon for lunch. Joan Heuvelhorst has agreed to prepare a hot lunch as last year. Cost is $5.00. Or you can BYO. At 5:00 p.m. we gather to tally section findings. Choose to participate part or all day. Participants can leave after lunch or continue the census. Since the Christmas Bird Count began over a century ago, it has relied on the dedication and commitment of volunteer citizen scientists. In other words, it all starts with you! Direct inquiries to Tom Leggett. (616) 249-3382 E-mail: .
