Dunes Saw-whet Owl Banding Demonstrations

October 16 @ 7:00 pm - November 15 @ 7:00 pm EDT

$5 – $10

Burn the midnight oil with the Indiana Audubon, in partnership with the Indiana Dunes National Park and Indiana Dunes Tourism as they bring the 12th season of saw-whet owl banding to the Indiana Dunes. Visitors can learn about Indiana’s smallest owl in this up-close and personal experience at the Indiana Dunes Visitor Center beginning October 16th on select nights through November 15th.

Programs occur each at 7pm CT (6pm beginning November 1). Participants will get the chance to see captured owls being banded outdoors at the banding field station during hourly checks. Participants can stay as long as they like, as volunteers do a minimum of three checks each night. Nightly programs are weather dependent and do not operate when rainy or high winds.

The Indiana Dunes Visitor Center is located at 1215 North State Road 49, about one mile north of I-94 in Chesterton.  All times are Central (Chicago) Time. (Google Map)

To comply with CDC recommendations, all owl banding demonstrations this fall will have the follow restrictions:

  • All owl banding observers must pre-register in advance for upcoming banding nights
  • All owl banding nights are limited to 10 participants.  Temperature screenings are conducted before each night.
  • All participants are required to utilize facial covering and/or social distancing
  • All banding will take place outside the Visitor Center.  Participants should bring a lawn chair, dress for cooler weather, and bring any snacks or drinks.  A campfire may be available most nights. 

All participants must read and agree to the IAS Field Trip Release to participate in IAS led events and trips.  Banding demonstration nights in 2020 will involve a $5 fee made as a donation towards Indiana Audubon and help fund supplies needed to keep the research project going ($10 on Halloween). Registration for each available night is below.  For questions, email us here.
