Bird Banding Workshop Registration Deadline Extended!

The registration deadline has been extended for Klamath Bird Observatory’s August 5-9 Fundamentals of Songbird Banding Workshop – now July 26. The $1,600 registration fee contributes directly to funding our long-term monitoring and banding training program. This is an introductory course and participants will be exposed to the fundamental skills and knowledge that serve as the foundation for becoming a skilled bird bander. This workshop is designed for undergraduates, graduate students, bird observatory volunteers, naturalists, and others interested in learning more about bird monitoring and conservation science. The course is particularly suitable for those interested in pursuing careers in ornithology or assisting at bird banding stations. No previous experience necessary!

The registration fee includes all meals (including beverages and snacks) beginning with dinner Monday August 5 and ending with lunch Friday August 9. Space is available for free tent camping at KBO’s Upper Klamath Lake Field Station. There is lodging nearby at Rocky Point Resort, Lake of the Woods Resort, Comfort Point Lodge, the Harriman Springs Resort and Marina, (all with rooms and/or cabins as well as RV and tent camping), the Crystalwood Lodge B&B, and a few options on Airbnb or VRBO (search Rocky Point, Oregon).

Come for a top-notch banding learning experience and help keep our long-running monitoring and training program going. For more information and to register visit the KBO website or contact Bob Frey at
