The National Audubon Society's Annual Christmas Bird Count is the longest-running wildlife census to assess the health of bird populations which helps guide conservation action. Every year for over a century, tens of thousands of volunteers take part. Co-founder of Sonoma Birding, Tom Rusert, launched the Christmas Bird Count for Kids in 2008 as a way to train future generations in birding and celebrating nature. We'll hear how birds are faring in Northern California habitats post-wildfire, and learn about efforts to revive the activity of birding.

Guests:

Tom Rusert, co-founder, Sonoma Valley Christmas Bird Count

Kerry Wininger, outreach coordinator, Osborn Preserve at the Center for Environmental Inquiry
