Join the Nature Journal Club for an early morning bird banding demonstration and meet Jack's bird drawing mentor.

Wake up with the birds and join us at the bird lab at Point Blue's Palomarin Field Station You will see birds in the hand (perhaps your own) and learn how scientists study bird populations.
