WILLMAR - Volunteers are welcome to join as citizens scientists for the annual Willmar Area Christmas Bird Count this Saturday.

Anyone interested in participating can meet in Bethany Hall at the Calvary Lutheran Church, 302 Olena Avenue S.W., in Willmar at 7:30 a.m. Dress for the outdoors.

This will be the 57th annual count in Willmar as part of the National Audubon Christmas Bird Count, which dates back 118 years.

Dave and Ardy Lais will continue the tradition of offering a warm beverage and a small treat to those who stop by at their house east of Sibley Park between 9 and 11:30 a.m.
