Bird Banding at Wolf Ridge
See local songbirds up close as you watch, and sometimes participate in, the bird banding process. Learn about the importance of bird banding and what scientists are discovering through this research.
In addition to being part of the national MAPS (Monitoring Avian Productivity Success) study, Wolf Ridge incorporates banding into our regular classroom experiences.
For those wanting a deeper experience, we offer more intense training. Four to seven-day Advanced and Beginning IBP Banding Courses are available. See details.
How To Participate
Summer open-to-the-public Bird Banding takes place at the Forest Ecology Building, about a mile and a half up the driveway. Take a left at the Forest Ecology sign, then veer right to the gray building.
Check our website for current schedule. Come any time between 7–12:00 a.m.
