Hooray! This is Rainier Audubon’s 40th CBC!

Sign up now for our Dec. 27th webinar on "How to do a CBC in your backyard!

This year, due to COVID-19 restrictions, our CBC is taking a different form. Our CBC will be at home.

Our CBC AT HOME event will be on Sunday, January 3rd, 2021. Anyone may participate by sending in their bird sightings from their home (by January 15th). People within the Rainier Audubon district (see Our Territory above) will have their data sent to National Audubon, and everyone who participates will have their data added to our 40th CBC celebration

We will have a virtual gathering to celebrate our 40th, including a species tally by our chapter renowned Charlie Wright. Everyone is welcome to join and share results at our online Rainier Audubon 40th CBC celebration, 6:30pm-8:00pm:
