Fred Bassett is coming back to the Kreher Preserve & Nature Center! Fred, a certified master bird bander, who has banded more than 35,000 hummingbirds from Florida to Alaska, will be taking us through the banding process. We will get to see him capture Ruby-throated Hummingbirds, record their health stats, band them, and release them. A couple of lucky participants may even be able to hold a hummer, as it is being released! Join us for this extraordinary opportunity to see hummingbirds up close.

Admission is $5 ($4 for members); children 3 and under are free. Canceled in the event of rain.

Tickets can be purchased at
