Saturday, August 24. 9 am – 12 pm. Donations appreciated. Vernon Kleen from Springfield (one of the few licensed hummingbird banders in the U.S.) will be on hand to demonstrate hummingbird banding and discuss the fascinating world of hummingbirds. You will have a chance to feel the heartbeat of a hummingbird and “adopt” one of these beautiful flyers. Jointly sponsored by Forest Park Nature Center and the Lincoln Land Association of Bird Banders. Forest Park Nature Center, 5809 N. Forest Park Drive, Peoria Heights, IL 61614.
