Make a weekend field trip to our Center at Pomfret and participate in a bird banding demonstration by Andy Rzeznikiewicz, a licensed bird bander and the sanctuary manager at our Grassland Bird Conservation Center. 

The demonstration starts at 9 a.m. Saturday, September 28, at the Center at Pomfret.

Participants will get close-up views of songbirds, observe and maybe get to practice bird-banding technique, and also learn about the information contained on a bird’s leg band and why it is important.

A second session will be held Saturday, October 12, also at 9 a.m. The cost for each is $5 for members and $10 for non-members. The Center at Pomfret is at 218 Day Road, Pomfret.
