What's Included

This program will be led by Dr. Glenn A. Proudfoot, Visiting Scholar at Vassar College and Mohonk Preserve Research Associate. For nearly 40 years Glenn has been studying birds of prey. His current research explores migratory pathways of the Northern Saw-whet Owl. With luck, participants will experience being up close and personal with these silent visitors. The program will include a presentation of research objectives, introduction to mist netting, and, hopefully, observation of a bird banding station in action. Children ages 12 and up are welcome. Children must always be accompanied by an adult. This is an indoor program with a possible short outdoor component. Space is limited. Reservations are required. The fee per person is $10 and is required at the time of registration. Half of the proceeds from this program will be donated to Glenn Proudfoot to support and continue his research on Northern Saw-whet Owls.

About This Organizer

In partnership with our members, supporters, and volunteers, we protect and manage over 8,000 acres of mountain ridges, forests, fields, streams, ponds, and other unique and beautiful places. As New York's largest nonprofit nature preserve, each year we welcome over 165,000 visitors. 

The Preserve's devoted volunteers, dedicated donors, and expert staff all work in harmony for a common cause - to create a place where people and nature thrive. To accomplish our goal of protecting one of the region's most treasured and beautiful places, we conduct programs in four key areas - environmental education, land protection, land stewardship, and conservation science.

At the Preserve, you can enjoy scenic beauty, outdoor activities, and peace and quiet, all just 90 miles from New York City. Our carriage roads and trails are perfect for hiking, running, mountain biking, horseback riding, and cross-country skiing. We're also the home of "Gunks" climbing and bouldering, and one of the most visited climbing destinations in North America.
