Registration begins on October 1st, 2014

Register by November 1st, 2014 to be eligible to win a pair of tickets to Northstar for the 2014-2015 ski season.

Brought to you by the Tahoe Institute for Natural Science, the Tahoe Big Year celebrates the hundreds of bird species that make the Tahoe Basin their home all year-round, during summer or winter, or while passing through to other destinations.

Beginning January 1st, participants will scour the Lake Tahoe watershed in search of as many species of birds as they can find during 2015. The competition is free and open to anyone, though those who become TINS members (starting at $35/year) will enjoy additional perks during the Tahoe Big Year. We hope to make the Tahoe Big Year an event that will inspire people to explore and experience Tahoe's natural areas, put Tahoe on the map as a birding destination, and cultivate a thriving community of nature and wildlife enthusiasts.

Please explore the links under the "About TBY" tab above to learn more about the Tahoe Big Year.
