Bird Banding with Jim Chace on the Sweet Flag Partners Property – Sunday, September 10 at 9:00 am

Learn about Salve Regina University Professor Jim Chace and his students’ migratory bird research on Bailey Brook. The Aquidneck Land Trust worked in partnership with the Town of Middletown to preserve this parcel of land buffering Bailey Brook. Bailey Brook is a primary source of drinking water for Middletown and Newport residents. It also serves as habitat for several migratory bird species. Have you ever seen birds being banded? Here’s your chance!

This free tour will be led by Aquidneck Land Trust Board Member Jim Chace and his students at Salve Regina University. Plan to meet at 9:00am on Sunday, September 10. Please park at the Middletown Police Station located at 123 Valley Road, Middletown, RI. Parking is limited so please carpool.
