Powdermill Avian Research Center Free Guided Tour and Bird Walk

Powdermill Nature Reserve
Powdermill Avian Research Center (PARC) offers FREE guided tours of the bird banding lab and research facility. Attendees must arrive by 8:00 a.m. in order to join the tour. These behind-the-scenes experiences allow 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 will also be guided to PARC’s flight tunnel to 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. On your tour, you’ll have the opportunity to chat with the scientists on staff, and perhaps visiting researchers, about the other projects being conducted at PARC. After the tour, we will go on a guided bird walk. This event is weather dependent and will be canceled due to heat (>78 degrees), strong winds, or inclement weather.
Guests must pre-register for the tour and arrive at PARC by 8:00 a.m.
