Instructional Video

Here’s the 2014 version of the GBBC instructional video and slide show!

It explains how to take part in the Great Backyard Bird Count, why participation is needed, and what we can learn from the count. You can play it on your computer and project it if you’re conducting a GBBC workshop. See below the video for the PowerPoint version with script.





If you would prefer to offer the presentation as a PowerPoint, you can download the file as well as the accompany script. The slide show was made using the 2010 version of PowerPoint.
