MAPS Bird Banding
Leader: Jay Barry,Volunteer Educator and licensed bird bander for 40 years Watch the fascinating banding process from capture to release. The summer MAPS (Monitoring Avian Productivity and Survivorship) program will help provide critical information relating to the ecology, conservation, and management of North American landbird populations, and the factors responsible for changes in their populations. Using mist nets to catch birds, Jay will ID, band, and record our findings for the national database. Learn how to identify species, sex, and age with a variety of live subjects!
We are dedicated to providing accurate event information, however, we advise calling ahead to confirm dates, times, location, and other details.
