Fall Bird Banding

Visit the bird banding station at Rushton Woods Preserve to observe the banding process,  learn about the science of bird migration, and see the importance of land conservation for migratory birds. Space is limited and we want to ensure that newcomers can experience the magic of bird banding, so we ask that you limit your signups to 3 slots at a time. When you sign up for a slot, you are committing to attending at that time frame, but if you are unable to attend, please email Blake Goll, bhg@wctrust.org Please register in advance and stay within the designated viewing area for the safety of our staff and visitors.

Every Thursday, October 5 – 19 | 7:30 – 10:30 am

Please note the following:

-Banding is weather dependent. Banding may be canceled at any time with limited or no notice due to any one or more of the following weather factors: rain before a banding date, rain on a banding date, high winds. 

-The banding station is entirely outdoors and you may have to walk through wet grass or mud to reach the station; please dress appropriately.

-Photography is permitted.

-Video is prohibited.

If you are interested in bringing a group to observe banding, please contact Lisa Kiziuk, Director of the Bird Conservation Program (lkr@wctrust.org) to discuss arrangements.
