Event Description

Bring your mother, grandmother, aunts, and the special women in your life to meet ornithologists Dr. Neil Bernstein and Dr. Anya Illes for a bird banding program! Be our guest and drop in anytime during the window of time to watch Dr. Bernstein and Dr. Illes net, band, and release birds from Nature Center property. You’ll get a chance to see the equipment they use, observe the banding process, and learn about the importance of banding. You’ll also get an up close look at the birds! Children and families are welcome to join in on the fun. Banding is a weather-dependent activity. This program is open to the public; free will donations to the Nature Center are welcome.
