Whitewater offers bird banding demonstration (02/15/2006)
Want an up close encounter with birds? If so, Join Quarry Hill Nature Center Director Greg Munson at Whitewater State Park Saturday February 18 from 1:00-2:30p.m. A fine mist net will be used to capture birds visiting Whitewater Valley Visitor Center's feeding station. It is likely that dozens will be caught. Program participants will have the opportunity to handle and release captured birds after they have been studied, observed and banded with an aluminum tag. Find out how this scientific tool helps wildlife researchers learn more about bird populations and their natural history, including where they go and how long they live. Find out what has been learned about Whitewater's birds!

This activity is free but Minnesota State Park vehicle permits are required. Daily permits are $7 and annual permits are $25. For additional information call Whitewater State Park during weekday business hours at (507) 932-3007, extension 0.
