Bird Banding in the Field with KBO Biologists & Interns June

Come join KBO biologists and this season’s interns for a bird banding experience in the field!

This is a fundraiser for KBO’s long-standing and well-respected international field biologist training program. It is a unique opportunity to meet some of our scientists in a small group setting, learn about the science of bird banding, and see some of Oregon’s birds up close. We will observe live bird banding including mist netting and data collection and learn more about Southern Oregon’s migrating and resident birds all while in the field in the beautiful Upper Klamath Lake region. Come join us and support future scientists!
