Bird Banding Workshops

Join us as we assist with an ongoing research and conservation project by catching, identifying, banding, and recording data on the birds of Wesselman Woods Nature Preserve. This unique, hands-on birding experience offers close-up encounters with wild birds. Workshops include demonstrations on banding techniques and bird identification. Participants often help release the birds into the wild. These workshops are free and are open to the public. See our calendar for upcoming workshop dates.
