Participants can download the free eBird Mobile app to enter bird sighting data themselves or we will have paper data sheets available. Anyone interested in earning the NC Bird Count Badge should register at this link: Children in grades K-8 are invited to sign up for the NC Arboretum’s ecoEXPLORE program, a science enrichment program that encourages students to capture images of plants and animals found in nature and upload them to their online account where they can earn various badges and prizes.
