HNC Species Count
May - August 2023
Starting May 2023, join us at an organized group event for a few hours of botanizing, birding, odeing, herping, or any other ‘-ing’ that calls to you.
Please note this is not a nature outing – participants will be moving at a self-led pace and using their own knowledge to identify and record the species they find.
The HNC undertakes a variety of nature conservation projects each year.
You can help protect the natural world.
Donor support is the key to ensuring we can continue and build on a century of protecting nature for future generations.
