Meet Dr. Mark Johnson and the bird banding team at the Vangrin Pavilion at Eden Mill. Observe the data collection process. See the live birds up close as Mark measures the wing, ages the bird, determines the bird’s sex and weighs the bird. The banding team will begin putting nets up at 7:00am. By 8:00am they should be on their first net run and collecting birds. Join them anytime. If nobody is in the pavilion, just hang out and they’ll be back! **Family Friendly**
Directions: Follow Eden Mill Road past the mill to the bridge. The bridge is out, so park at the dead end. Cross the foot bridge and follow the trial. Just inside the woods, you’ll see a small pavilion! That’s where you’ll find the banding team!
Call Mark Johnson 410.692.5978 (home) or 443.528.0045 (cell) if the weather looks sketchy.
