Join us for a morning of songbirds and daisies on Kelleys Island. We’ll hop on the 9:00 am ferry from Marblehead, arriving on Kelleys at 9:30 am. First stop will be a visit with Master Bird Bander Tom Bartlett at this long-term migratory bird banding station. We’ll walk the mist net route with Tom and hopefully have an opportunity to observe bird banding. Afterwards we’ll visit properties conserved by the Land Conservancy to check on populations of the Federally Threatened Lakeside Daisy (Tetraneuris herbacea). Participants will provide their own transportation to and on the Island.
Advanced registration is required.
