Individuals who are enthusiastic about birds, informed about their threats, and empowered to become involved in addressing those threats, can make a contribution by volunteering to participate in the national spring bird count. To participate in Bombay Hook’s bird count meet at the Visitor Center. Teams will be formed and each team will survey a section of the Refuge.
