Summer Banding Camp

For many years, PSBO held a summer banding camp for high school students and adults from around the country at a field research station in the Cascade Mountains. Camp participants developed their banding skills and helped researchers document how birds use moist high-elevation meadows in the Cascade Mountains to replace their feathers and prepare for southward migration during August.

This program is currently being restructured in response to changing research priorities. We hope to start offering a new camp program in 2014. Check back here for status updates!

In training students young and old, we are building up our base of committed banders and amateur ornithologists that constitute our core membership.
