Bird Banding Demonstration
May 12th 8 am - 10 am
Audrey Carroll Audubon Sanctuary
Birds will be captured, fitted with a numbered aluminum band, and released unharmed. If we are lucky, we may re-capture birds that were banded last year. Participants will see how the birds are caught and handled, have a chance to see them closer than ever before, and maybe hold them in the hand! Because birds are most readily caught early in the morning, participants will have to get up when the birds do.
Meet at 8 a.m. at the entry gate to the sanctuary at 13030 Old Annapolis Road (just east of Detrick Road) in Mt. Airy. No rest room facilities are available, and the event will be cancelled in case of inclement weather. For more information contact Bob Schaefer at 301-831-5660 or firstname.lastname@example.org, or check Audubon's web site at www.centralmdaudubon.org.
ASCM would like to thank the volunteers and patrons who ventured out to the Audrey Carroll Sanctuary on April 28th for our annual Native Plant Sale. The sale was a great success! Because of your support, we are able to continue to maintain our two sanctuaries and provide a valuable habitat for our native wildlife, as well as provide local educational garden grants. Hope to see you again next year!
