Citizen Science Saturdays: Backyard Bird Count
January 20, 2024 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm
SPECIAL TICKET REQUIRED.
Location: Inside MetaZoo Discovery Center!
Are you an aspiring scientist? Do you love learning about the natural world and want to help mitigate the environmental damage humans cause? Join us at the Louisville Zoo as we share information about how you can get involved with Citizen Science! Also called community science, citizen science is the collective term for public involvement in scientific research. It can be anything from counting birds to sampling air quality to identifying images caught by wildlife cameras! The projects we will explore in this program relate to Louisville Zoo conservation initiatives while also encouraging you (and your loved ones) to explore the outdoors.
January Theme: Great Backyard Bird Count
Start your year off with science! Spend the afternoon learning from Zoo keepers and educators at the Louisville Zoo about ways to support birds in your backyard and around the world. You’ll learn about bird habitat and anatomy, the challenges threatening the survival of various species, and how you can get involved to help save wildlife. You may even meet some of the Zoo’s resident ambassador birds!
