Please Contact Us

Please contact us regarding visits, volunteer and internship opportunities. Tours and banding demonstrations are given with prior arrangement. We welcome your bird club, scout group or family to learn more about what we do.

Migratory bird banding runs March through May and August through November.  Breeding grassland studies are conducted May through August.  The best time to see birds is early in the morning and our work has often concluded by early afternoon.  Please keep in mind that since our primary objective is research visitors can not always be accommodated.

For more information or reservations contact Kathy Thornton at Washington College’s Center for Environment & Society.
