International Shorebird Conservation Program: Banding Demo

May 29, 2023 @ 8:30 am - 10:30 am

Join the Nj Audubon Research team at Fortescue, as they walk you through the processes and procedures of shorebird banding! Gain an understanding of the International Shorebird Conservation Program while taking a closer look at how and why shorebirds are being banded along the Delaware Bayshore. Most importantly, learn how shorebird banding is being utilized to inform decisions on conservation policy development, species conservation, and land stewardship initiatives. **MEETING LOCATION**: you will receive a confirmation email, which contains the exact directions to the meeting location at Fortescue.
Preregistration is required. 

COST: $8 members, $12 nonmembers.

IMPORTANT INFORMATION: We bird in all weather. Be sure to check the forecast in advance and dress in layers appropriate for prevailing weather conditions. The weather in Cape May can differ considerably from nearby inland areas and may be warmer, colder, or windier so it’s best to be over prepared. We may have to bird in the rain, so please bring your rain gear. We may walk up to 1.5 miles, over generally level, sometimes muddy or sandy terrain. Some trips involve walks over jetties.

CANCELLATION: NJ Audubon’s CMBO programs are virtually never cancelled. If we cancel, due to lack of participation, severe weather, or unforeseen circumstances, all participants will be notified as soon as possible and are eligible for a full refund. Participants may cancel without penalty if greater than 48 hours in advance. Sorry, no refund for cancellations less than 48 hours in advance unless due to health emergencies; however, registrations can be transferred to another program in the future.
