Craters of the Moon: Christmas Bird Count

The Craters of the Moon National Monument and Preserve is co-sponsoring the 2011 Christmas Bird Count with the Snake River Audubon Society. The Christmas Bird Count is an international effort to count wintering birds in the western hemisphere. Participants of all experience and skill levels are welcome.

Participants should meet at the Craters of the Moon visitor center at 9:00 a.m. on Wednesday, December 14, 2011. The visitor center is located 18 miles west of Arco on Highway 20/26/93. Remember to wear boots, warm clothes and bring binoculars and a lunch. You should be prepared to spend the day outside in winter conditions. Snowshoes will be provided if conditions require.
