Beginning & Advanced Bird Banding Classes - 2019

Presented by The Institute for Bird Populations

 

Dear Bander (or bander to be),

Imagine a week surrounded by the quiet sounds of nature and being immersed in the sights, sounds, and knowledge of birds.  That can be part of your summer when you take a banding class through The Institute for Bird Populations (IBP).

IBP is pleased to be able to offer several banding classes this spring, summer, and fall with a range of dates and locations across the country. The classes are listed below but class information is also always available on our webpage at: http://www.birdpop.org/pages/birdBandingClasses.php Classes often fill quickly, so if you are interested, we recommend signing up soon.

A beginner banding class will be held April 20-26, 2019 at the Opossum Creek Retreat in south central West Virginia, near the New River Gorge National River. Please contact the class host, Keith Richardson (phone: 888-488-4836), to register or for more information about the class.

Three banding classes will be held at the Wolf Ridge Environmental Learning Center in northeastern Minnesota: a beginner class June 23-30, 2019; an advanced class July 2-6, 2019; and a Youth Ornithology Camp (for kids entering grades 10-12) July 7-13, 2019. Please contact the class host, Peter Harris, or check out the banding class page for the beginner and advanced classes or student registration page for the Youth Ornithology Camp on Wolf Ridge’s website for more information, including how to register.
