The North Carolina Museum of Natural Sciences at Whiteville invites you to join us for “Meet Me at the Museum: Saturday Explorations,” a free family-friendly science and nature program offered the third Saturday of every month. This month, the Museum welcomes Susan Campbell, Wildlife Ecologist and Research Affiliate with the NC Museum of Natural Sciences in Raleigh. Campbell will present her program, “Banding Hummingbirds,” on Saturday, July 21, 9:00 a.m. – noon. Take an up-close look at hummingbirds, learn how to properly handle, record data on, band and release hummingbirds. This program will take place entirely outdoors.
