Recommended for adults. $6 for members, $9 for nonmembers.

June 17: Bird Banding at Baltimore Woods
Bird banding is essential to helping scientists monitor bird populations and habitats, giving key information about conservation needs. We’ve partnered with the Onondaga Audubon Society and SUNY-ESF to reinstitute bird banding at Baltimore Woods after 24 years. Come for a pleasant birding walk to the banding station and see the bird banders in action. Recommended for ages 8 and up. $6 for members, $9 for nonmembers.
June 24: Mosses: Tiny but Mighty
Mosses may be tiny, but that certainly doesn’t mean that they aren’t still important here at Baltimore Woods. Because of their size, mosses usually don’t attract much attention, but these tiny plants play a huge role in biodiversity and forest health. Come learn about the diverse, unique world of mosses, and learn once and for all if moss always grows on the north side of a tree. Recommended for ages 14 and up. $6 for members, $9 for nonmembers.
