For over a century, Audubon’s Christmas Bird Count has been a time-honored tradition. Citizen science data collected during this annual event has uncovered critical information for bird conservation. Join Refuge Staff and Volunteers to observe as many birds within Merritt Island National Wildlife Refuge and the Kennedy Space Center. Celebrate and share your sightings afterwards at the refuge Visitor Center with light refreshments and great company.
