About This Project
Netting and banding birds has for a long time been used as a tool for investigations in avian biology and ecology. The bird banding station at Stone Lakes is active throughout the year and has been in continuous operation since April 1996. Over 30,000 birds from over 100 species have been banded at the station. This request is a stop-gap while long-term operations funding is secured. Funds raised beyond the requested amount will be used for banding station operations.
