Bird Banding at Lake Red Rock

Pella — Saturday, March 30 (7:00 to 10:00 a.m.)

Saturday, April 20 (7:00 to 10:00 a.m.)

Saturday, May 25 (7:00 to 10:00 a.m.)

Location: Red Rock Visitor Center

 

Join Nelson Hoskins, area birdwatcher and licensed bird bander, to experience what the science of bird banding is all about!  Mist nets will be set up  around the Red Rock Visitor Center to capture small birds which will then be fitted with numbered leg bands to track their movements (if recaptured at some point in the future).   Come check out the thrill of seeing live birds "in hand" as they are banded for future research!  The activity is free of charge, and no reservations are needed.  Come anytime during the three-hour activity to experience the action!  For more information, contact the Corps of Engineers office at (641) 828-7522 or (641) 628-8690.
