Bird Banding Demonstration

WildResearch will be hosting a bird banding demonstration event at the Iona Beach Regional Park, where visitors can first-handedly witness how a banding station operates, including net-extraction, banding, species ID, deciphering age and sex of birds, volunteer engagement, among many other things! Learn how WildResearch has been conducting this citizen science based research program since 2010, monitoring the population health of migratory and resident birds in the southwest coast of British Columbia. Please wear warm clothing, appropriate clothing for weather, binoculars, camera, waterproof shoes.
