Interested in Ohio’s wildlife or have a passion for birding? Come join the Licking Park District during one of our many MAPS bird banding mornings at Infirmary Mound Park. Not only will you be able to see our banding team in action, you’ll also get the chance to see the many different species of birds that live in your local parks!

Our upcoming banding opportunities will be held on July 22nd and 30th, weather permitting. We do not operate in high wind or rain. Check our website calendar for cancellation before coming!

Meet at Infirmary Mound Park's Shelter 6 at 10am and we'll walk you back to our banding station!
