The Dickinson County Nature Center will host Birding on the Green Monday.

Environmental Education Coordinator, Bryanna Kuhlman says the event helps with the Audubon Bird Count.  "Birding on the Green will be this Monday at 7 am at Brooks Golf Course.  There you'll meet at the Club House and you'll drive around Brooks Golf Course and you Bird on the Green.  So, we look for different species to help with the Audubon Bird Count so that Brooks Golf Course can keep their Audubon Certification."

She notes that the event is free and open to all ages, but registration is requested.  "So, we do have a couple restrictions due to COVID-19.  We ask that participants wear masks, and then we also ask that they call and register by calling the Nature Center  at 712.336.6352 so that we can make sure that everyone has their own cart."

Binoculars and appropriate outdoor clothes are encouraged.
