Registration for 2017 spring field trips to the Creamer’s Field Migration Station is now closed and our schedule is full. Registration for programs during fall migration will open August 1.

Programs are available Mon-Fri mornings August 21-September 29 and AK-FAI-091908-bandingdemo-14are offered by the Alaska Songbird Institute in cooperation with the Alaska Department of Fish & Game. Students visit the bird banding station, observe wildlife at Creamer’s Field, and learn the conservation story of Creamer’s Field Migratory Waterfowl Refuge.

Programs are adaptable and appropriate for all grade levels. 



Programs are available mornings only (and must begin by 10 AM). Topics will vary based on grade level. If you have a request, please let us know.

We can accommodate 2 classes each morning, so you can share a bus with another class.

The program lasts approximately 2.25 hours.

The program fee is $50 per class. This fee directly supports the Alaska Songbird Institute’s research and education programs at Creamer’s Field. We can accept cash, check, purchase order, and school credit cards.

The schedule is filled on a first-come, first-served basis, so get your request in early!
