We apologize, but this event has been cancelled.

Join biologists from Biodiversity Research Institute (BRI) for a bird banding demonstration. We’ll have the opportunity to see birds up close and “in the hand” and learn about the importance of monitoring bird populations.  We’ll meet at the River Point Conservation Area in West Falmouth, and have muffins and coffee after the program.

Bird banding is a research tool used by scientists to monitor bird movement, productivity, life span and more.  Mist nets are used to capture birds, and a small metal band is placed on the bird’s leg.  After a series of measurements are quickly recorded, the birds are released unharmed.  For more about BRI’s River Point project, please visit

Rain date 7/19.
