A Bird in the Hand
September 16, 2017 at 8:00 am - 10:00 am$25
Be part of an important research by participating in a real live songbird banding session at the marsh. Learn why Oak Hammock Marsh is such an important stop on the migration path. You might get to feel the birds feathers flutter in your gently closed palms a second before the moment of release, then unfurl your fingers and let the bird fly free!
The bird banding experience is followed by a canoe excursion or a guided birding walk on the trails. Smell the blooming wildflowers of the wetland and listen to the many songs of the wildlife at the marsh.
This event is part of the celebration of Science Literacy Week in an effort to showcase the excellence and diversity of science outreach institutions around the country.
$25 PER PERSON. PLEASE REGISTER AHEAD TO SECURE YOUR PLACE.
