North Branch Nature Center
We're a small preserve with a big heart at a gentle bend in the North Branch of the Winooski River.
For more than a decade North Branch Nature Center has put people in touch with the sights, sounds and sensations of the wild within our capital.
North Branch is firefly light sparkling in a child's eye. It is a lecture hall where we learn the secrets of warblers and willows and weather. And it is a quiet place to walk or ski, swim or sit, or simply to do nothing beside the river.
With your owl adoption, you will receive an official adoption certificate which includes a picture of your owl, its band number, date of capture/release, age, and gender. We’ll also update you on any other encounters of your owl either at our banding sights or elsewhere along its migration.
Saw-whet Owl adoptions are a great way to support NBNC’s owl research while also forming a special connection with an individual bird.
