DATE CHANGE: BIRD BANDING MONDAY MAY 27
Are you interested in birds and want to learn more about them? What kind of birds are in our local fields and woods? What brings them here?
Join Master Bird Bander Strickland Wheelock and his team for a morning of bird banding at Inman Hill Conservation Area in Mendon (98 Inman Hill Road, Mendon, off Blackstone St.) on Monday, May 27, 2019 from 7:30-10:30 AM. Additional morning sessions will be scheduled as weather permits, likely Sunday, June 2nd. Space is limited and pre-registration is required.
During a banding session, participants see birds up close, learn field marks that help identify the species, and safely release birds after banding. Programs are for adults and children ages 6 and up.
This educational program is a fundraiser for MLT to highlight the importance of conserved, open space in the community to the wildlife that depend on it.
