There's nothing like a visit to Parker River National Wildlife Refuge for wonderful family nature experiences, and seeing the bird banding station in operation is at the top of the list. See Mass Audubon scientists evaluate and release migrant songbirds while you learn about migration and habitat use. Don't miss this chance - the bird banding 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 a walk in the woods. 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.
