About this Event

Join ALT for a bird banding demonstration at Bailey Brook with ecology professor Dr. Jim Chace of Salve Regina University. Bailey Brook is a primary source of drinking water for Middletown and Newport residents and serves as a habitat for several migratory bird species. The Sweet Flag property buffers Bailey Brook and was protected by ALT in 2006. Jim will be catching and banding migrant and resident songbird species as part of his research on the property over several years of study. Hear about the different species of birds Jim and his students have observed and banded on the property.

Please park at the Middletown Police Department parking lot then proceed to the back of the property and turn left to find the gathering point.
