After four years of successful NABC workshops in Belize at the Toucan Ridge Ecology and Education Society (T.R.E.E.S) Field Station in Belize (www.treesociety.org). We are offering the fall banding workshop is back by popular demand! Over the 5-day workshop, participants will learn the basics of bird banding from certified NABC trainers.

Instruction will be primarily field-based in small groups (max. 4 per trainer), while classroom style discussions will review: the history of bird banding, bird banding techniques, Pyle, Bird Topography, Molt, and other pertinent topics.

The workshop is tailored for participants with no experience to those with plenty. For those wishing to become certified (see www.nabanding.net for requirements) at the Assistant, Bander, or Trainer level, the session will take place immediately following the workshop.
