Join the Vermont Fish & Wildlife Department at the new Dead Creek Visitor Center in Addison to learn more about bird banding and conservation. Songbird banding will take place from 8 a.m. to noon on Oct. 16, 17 and 21. Owl banding will take place from 8 to 11 p.m. on Friday, Oct. 20.
Members of the public will help identify the birds, observe the banding process, and can even help release the birds after they are banded. There will also be stations to identify birds using binoculars, a hunter education station to learn about waterfowl blinds and decoys, and a station with stuffed bird mounts.
Interested school groups are asked to contact Corey Hart at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The new Dead Creek Visitor Center is located at 966 Route 17, Addison.
