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, scheduled for May 17-20 and May 25-27, 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, please provide a statement that includes (1) information about your college major or concentration, career plans, any professional work related to wildlife biology, and your experience with birds; (2) why you would best be suited to receive the training; and (3) how this training will be applied to your professional work, personal pursuits, and interests. Send your statement, by April 1, to Sam Merrill, Conservation Committee Chair, BHAS, at sammerrill3@nullcomcast.net.
