Come visit one of the premiere, long-term banding operations in North America and see the work in action. Mark Dettling will host a bird banding demonstration, explaining how birds are captured, what information is collected, and how that information is used in conservation. There is an optional ¼ mile hike to view our mist nets that does include some stairs and steep sections.
