Jefferson County Open Space Kicks off 'Big Year Jeffco' Program  

Jefferson County is home to an abundant variety of bird species. To celebrate and preserve these species and their habitats, Jefferson County Open Space is excited to offer a Big Year in 2018. Join fellow community birders in identifying by sight or sound the largest number of species of birds within Jefferson County. Big Year Jeffco began in January and runs through December 31, 2018. 

Participants will track their bird watching through the app, eBird. Attend classes and events throughout the year to learn more about Jefferson County bird species, connect with other birders in the community, and pick up the first edition of the Jefferson County Bird Guide at the Lookout Mountain Nature Center.
