Visit Joppa Flats' Bird Banding Station on Parker River National Wildlife Refuge and observe the bird banding process. Mass Audubon scientists capture, evaluate, and release migrant songbirds while you learn about migration and habitat use. Don't miss this rare opportunity -- the station operates only during the height of migration in spring (April and May) and fall (September and October) and is very weather dependent.

Instructions and Directions:

Meet at the Sub Headquarters parking lot at Parker River National Wildlife Refuge. Bring binoculars and a field guide to birds. Wear clothing and footwear appropriate for the weather and terrain. Protect yourself from biting insects.

Masks are optional outdoors, but please have one handy.

Please note our CANCELLATION POLICY: If cancellations are made less than 7 days prior to the program, refunds cannot be issued.

Registration is required.
