Bird-banding Training Scholarships

Bird-banding Training Scholarships

BHAS will again offer two scholarships for bird-banding training this coming spring. The six days of training will be presented at Glacial Heritage Preserve over two long week-ends, tentatively scheduled for May 20-22 and May 27-29, by the Center for Natural Lands Management (CNLM). The cost for training each person is $450; BHAS will provide $400 of the fee for each scholarship recipient, so each participant will have to provide the remaining $50. After the training, each recipient will be expected to make a short presentation at a BHAS program meeting and participate in volunteer bird-banding using her/his new skills.

If you are interested in participating in this training and applying for one of the scholarships—people of all ages are eligible—please provide a statement explaining (1) why you would best be suited to receive the training and (2) how you will apply this training to your professional work and/or to your personal pursuits and interests. Send your statement, by April 1, to Sam Merrill, Conservation Committee Chair, BHAS, at sammerrill3@nullcomcast.net. (photo – CNLM)
