Powdermill Avian Research Center Open House
October 20, 2022, 8:00 am - 12:00 pm
Powdermill Nature Reserve
Join us for an Open House to celebrate the grand opening of our new bird banding laboratory! Powdermill Avian Research Center’s (PARC) Open House days are FREE behind-the-scenes experiences for people to visit the bird banding lab and see up-close how researchers safely capture and band birds, and learn about the data they gather. Visitors are also able to visit PARC’s flight tunnel and hear about how we’re studying avian perception of glass to provide glass manufacturers and building designers with important information that will help reduce bird-window collisions. You’ll also have the opportunity to chat with the scientists on staff, and perhaps visiting researchers, about the other projects being conducted at PARC. This event is weather dependent and will be canceled due to heat (>78 degrees), strong winds, or inclement weather.
Drop in at any time between 8 a.m. and 12 p.m. (We recommend arriving as early as possible for the best chance to see a variety of birds.) Registration recommended but not required .
