Enjoy a Sunday afternoon 'for the birds'! Experience the beauty of birds up close when you observe trapping, netting, banding and releasing birds. The banding of birds in the United States is controlled under the Migratory Bird Treaty Act and requires a U.S. Federal Bird Banding and Marking Permit. Quarry Hill Nature Center holds this federal permit and band birds for educational and research purposes. Learn about bird characteristics, bird adaptations and the Federal Bird Banding Program during these monthly programs.
