Bird Banding at Francis Beidler- June 12th.
Please join Audubon South Carolina and the Carolina Young Birders Club for this special birding program at the Audubon Center at Francis Beidler Forest. Meet our friendly staff in the Beidler Forest visitor center at 9:00am; once everyone is gathered, we’ll start the program with a visit to our bird banding station. Participants will learn how Audubon researchers track bird movements and hopefully get the opportunity to see a few species up close! After this demonstration, our expert naturalist will lead a guided tour of the old-growth swamp along our 1.75-mile boardwalk where we’ll look for a variety of birds (and other wildlife) along the way. The program will finish around noon; participants are invited to bring their own picnic lunch to have on site afterwards.
This program is specifically designed for kids and teenagers ages 8-19 that are interested in birds. Admission is free for young birders and adult admission is $10/person. Space is limited, and registration is required. Please sign up here on Audubon South Carolina's website: [link pending]
