Advanced Banding AT

Advanced Bird Banding/MAPS Course

Welder Wildlife Refuge April 10-13, 2019

The workshop will begin at 8:00 the morning of April 10th and end the afternoon of April 13th to make a total of 15 hours of training. The workshop is hosted by the Rob and Bessie Welder Wildlife Foundation and the Institute for Bird Populations of Point Reyes, California.

This 4-day workshop is being taught by a professional from the Institute for Bird Populations, Daniele Kaschube. There will be presentations and demonstrations, as well as hands-on activity.

You must have some experience with MAPS (Monitoring Avian Productivity and Survivorship) banding, and with aging and sexing birds to register. Read the attached flyer, and if you believe your experience qualifies, contact Dr. Selma Glasscock using the information in the flyer. The $1250 cost is high, but it covers meals, 4 nights of lodging, and materials, as well as the trainer’s transportation and salary. The maximum number for the workshop is 9, so if you are interested, contact Welder as soon as possible. If you are not interested but know someone who might be, please forward this message.
