Lake Iowa Nature Center

ChickadeeAdmire wild birds up close – you may even get to release one!

Get the chance to see wild birds and watch how they are banded and measured at this family-friendly event. Banding will be led by licensed bird bander Bob Van Ersvelde, a Grinnell resident who has over 23 years of experience. Experts will be banding the birds, but observers will get the chance to release them!

Come out anytime from 8-11am, as there will be ongoing demonstrations. But remember: the early bird catches the worm!

This is a free event. Meet at the Nature Center.
