Due to Covid-19 we are offering limited in person birding events with partners, and each event is for smaller groups following social distancing guidelines and wearing masks. As cases continue to rise in the state of Massachusetts, we may need to cancel some events for our safety and yours. We are careful now so we can flock together safely soon. We are currently brainstorming digital events to offer, so please check back for more information.

Christmas Bird Count
for families at Arcadia Wildlife Sanctuary
Saturday Dec 19, 2020 10:00 AM-12:00 PM EST
Sign up for 30 minute slots!
For over a century, people all over North America have been out counting birds as part of the Christmas Bird Count. This year at Arcadia Wildlife Sanctuary in Easthampton, MA we will provide bird education geared towards families with young children (ages 1-16).
Join Kit and Shyla from the MYBC at Arcadia between 10:00 AM and 12:00 PM EST to learn about winter birds and bird feeders. We will have 6 pairs of binoculars that folks can borrow, and we will disinfect them between users.
Due to COVID precautions, registration is required for 30-minute time slots. We will be watching birds at our feeders from outside on the boardwalk behind the visitor center. Restrooms are available. This is a free event, but registration is required.
