Grow & Learn: Atlanta Audubon Society

We are hosting a public bird banding from 8-10!

Bird banding is the attachment of a small, individually numbered metal or plastic tag to the leg or wing of a wild bird to enable individual identification. This helps in keeping track of the movements of the bird and its life history.

Afterwards, come volunteer and plant native fruit trees throughout the forest!
