Plan Your Gettysburg Trip


FEB 18

Great Backyard Bird Count

Join park biologists and volunteers for the Cornell Lab of Ornithology and the National Audubon Society learning about the birds wintering in the Gettysburg community. A bird viewing station will be set up inside the park Visitor Center lobby and visitors will be able to view the birds just outside the windows at feeding stations. Bring binoculars and guide books if you have them. Data from this event will help scientists gain a better understanding of the distribution and abundance of birds.  Co-sponsored by the South Mountain Audubon Society, Gettysburg National Military Park and the Gettysburg Foundation. For more information go to
