Saw-Whet Owl Banding Demonstration

Burn the midnight oil with the Indiana Audubon, in partnership with the Indiana Dunes National Park and Indiana Dunes Tourism as they bring the 13th season of saw-whet owl banding to the Indiana Dunes. Visitors can learn about Indiana’s smallest owl in this up-close and personal experience at the Indiana Dunes Visitor Center beginning October 21st on select nights through November 13th.

Programs occur each at 7 pm CT (6 pm beginning November 11th). Participants will get the chance to see captured owls being banded outdoors at the banding field station during hourly checks.
