Bird Banding Public Demonstration at WVU Core Arboretum

bird in the hand

Come to WVU Core Arboretum, along the Rail Trail to learn about how researchers safely capture birds to study them! 

WVU faculty and graduate students will set up mist nets to capture wild birds in a public demonstration. They will also talk about the important work that they do and answer questions about bird research. There is no formal program, stop in at any time to see what is happening. This event is free and open to the public, and it will be cancelled if there is rain. Please do not bring pets to avoid adding stress to the birds. Bring your friends, and let's hope the birds participate.

Since this event is down along the Rail Trail, it may be easier to park at the Star City Rail Trail parking lot and come South to the Arboretum on the Rail Trail.
