Bird banding demonstration

By Kalsa Parker Browning – Education Director, Marguerite Gahagan Nature Preserve

ROSCOMMON COUNTY- The Gahagan Nature Preserve will host a Bird Banding Demonstration program on Sat. May 13, from 7 -9:00 a.m. Attendees will see live birds up close and learn about why researchers band birds and what information it provides about the lives and habitat of these wildlife.

See how birds are captured, banded, measured, and what data is recorded. Discover how bird banding data is useful for scientific research, management, and conservation purposes.

Bird banding is weather dependent as it can be harmful for the birds in times of inclement weather or high winds. Registrants for the event will be provided with the most up to date information in case of inclement weather.

This program is free and open to the public, though space is limited. Interested participants can email info@gahagannature.org. The preserve is located at 209 W Maplehurst in Roscommon, MI 48653.
