Banding Saw-whet Owls in the Indiana Dunes!
November 14, 2017 @ 7:30 pm - 8:30 pm
Join speaker Brad Bumgardner, the Executive Director for the Indiana Adubon Society and previously an interpretive naturalist for the Indiana State Parks, for our November program.
The Indiana Dunes began banding owls as part of Project Owlnet in 2009. The area is a gateway for migrating owls traveling along the shores of Lake Michigan and into the rest of Indiana. Since its inception, the volunteers and staff have banded hundreds of migrating Saw-whet Owls. More impressively, the banding station at Indiana Dunes serves as one of the largest sites for public education and viewing due to the facilities near the banding sites. Learn about the secretive migration and opportunities to view Saw-whet Owls in the Indiana Dunes.
