National Audubon Society Christmas Bird Count 2016-2017

The 2016-2017 annual National Audubon Society Christmas Bird Count is coming soon.

Between December 14th and January 5th, tens of thousands of bird-loving volunteers will participate in counts across the Western Hemisphere.


The Christmas Bird Count is the longest-running wildlife census in the world. Each individual count takes place in a 15-mile-wide circle and is led by a compiler responsible for organizing volunteers and submitting observations to Audubon. Within each circle, participants tally all birds seen or heard that day.

The Audubon Christmas Bird Count is a citizen science project organized by the National Audubon Society.

There is no fee to participate and the quarterly report, American Birds, is available online. Counts are open to birders of all skill levels.

For more information, visit www.christmasbirdcount.org.

Beaver Creek Public Access (Maryland)

The Maryland Department of Natural Resources (DNR) recently acquired 6.5 acres along Beaver Creek in Washington County.

“This acquisition will provide anglers enhanced and improved access to Beaver Creek, a unique spring-fed creek environment that supports an excellent fishery for wild brown trout,” said Fishing and Boating Services Director David Blazer. “The limestone stream provides an excellent year-round fishery for residents and visitors alike.”

Located downstream from the Albert M. Powell State Fish Hatchery in Hagerstown, the new area will provide public access to Beaver Creek for catch and release fly-fishing.

The Program Open Space acquisition provides increased public access to nearly half of the current one-mile special trout management area, which was previously private land.


Beaver Creek is a tributary to Antietam Creek.
