Boy Scouts Merit Badge Study at Nature Center Still Has Openings

Jamestown, NY – There are still openings in the Boy Scout Bird Study Merit Badge program at the Audubon Nature Center on Saturday morning, April 25, 2015.

The 8 a.m.-noon program is planned so that Scouts who are just beginning their Bird Study Merit Badge can get a good start and those who have already begun can be tested if they are ready.

Scouts can learn about or review bird anatomy and songs, field guides, and binoculars at several learning stations that will be set up. Boys will select the stations they need to visit in order to complete requirements of the badge.

In addition to a bird feeder building station opportunity, walks with birding experts are scheduled for 8 a.m., 9:30 a.m., and 11 a.m.

Come Observe Bird Banding at the Nature Center

Come Observe Bird Banding at the Nature Center

Jamestown, NY – On Saturday mornings from April 25 through May 16, you can experience a scientific study: you can observe, and possibly even participate in, the annual bird banding at the Audubon Nature Center.

The age-old technique of bird banding is used to discover details about the lives of birds. Scientists who have both federal and state permits – and a great deal of training and experience – capture the birds in “mist” nets, so-called because they are so fine they are almost like mist.

You can drop in any time between 7 a.m. and 11 a.m. and learn from the researchers exactly how it is done. Come on your own or bring the kids with you to view this amazing process.

Dr. Scott Stoleson, Emily Thomas Perlock, and Don Watts will lead the bird banding.
