CHICO, Calif - Altacal Audubon Society will be holding the Chico Christmas Bird Count this Saturday, Dec. 14. 

This is an annual event where they collect data for the longest-running citizen science program in the United States. The task is to count all birds they can find within a 15-mile diameter circle centered in Chico. 

They usually have between 20 and 30 volunteers and divide them up to cover the 11 sections of the 15-mile circle.

The Chico CBC has been active since 1956, and all the data from all the CBC's around the country are entered into one giant database which is used by scientists and researchers to track trends in species. diversity and abundance. 

They will match novice birders with more experienced people, and spend most of the day covering their sections and counting birds. 

The Chico CBC count will end around 5 p.m. The group started at 7:30 a.m. and executive director Marie Muchowski says volunteers can count at their homes and email her the tallies.

For additional information, you can contact Marie at director@altacal.org or at (530) 228-0625.

Also this weekend, the Chico Community Band holiday concert is coming up and they will be honoring two special members.

With members from Chico and surrounding areas, the concert will showcase holiday selections, as well as regular band music.

The whole band will be performing and some smaller groups made up of the band will also have a chance to perform.

Being honored by their fellow members, one special couple, who is retiring from the band, will be honored.

The annual concert is scheduled for Sunday, Dec. 15 at the Lakeside Pavillion at 3 p.m.
