For ILYB Members and guests only

Join us for special experience as we observe bird banding at Sand Bluff Bird Observatory within Colored Sands Forest Preserve in Rockton, Illinois. We’ll walk alongside banding volunteers on a designated net run as they check the mist nets. We’ll have an opportunity to observe fall migrants in hand and watch as banders record information on each individual. The cost of this event is $3/person payable upon arrival.
