Join us for the Great Backyard Bird Count

at the Carolina Children’s Garden

Clemson Research and Education Center at Sandhill

Meet at the Children’s Garden entrance and venture out into the Garden and surrounding forest to help count our feathered year-round residents, winter visitors, and weary travelers, guided by some of our area’s leading bird watchers! Lewis Burke and Steve Patterson will be our lead birders. Bird watchers of all ages and stages, from first time to experts, take part each year.

Dress for the weather and bring a bird field guide, binoculars, and camera.
