Virtual Bird Monitoring & Banding Workshop (Sat.-Sun.)

Sat Sep 19 to Sun Sep 20, 2020, Vancouver, BC

New Bird Monitoring & Banding Virtual Workshop!

The Vancouver Avian Research Centre (VARC) is doing all we can to ensure safe and engaging programs by moving all of our workshops online. Join us for our virtual Bird Monitoring & Banding Workshop on September 19th and 20th 2020 and take advantage of our special pricing!

The workshop has been developed for people with little or no bird banding experience, although those with existing experience have benefited enormously from the classroom sessions. Most of all, these workshops are a fun and interesting way to take your interest in birds to the next level.

Workshop Zoom sessions will consist of facilitated live video presentations and materials which will be available for print. Learn how to accurately age, sex and identify plumage, molt sequences and life habits of North American passerines and receive training in bird safety and welfare, mist net use and data collection that provide a solid foundation of the technical skills required for the field. Workshop participants will have the option to attend two subsequent field session trips to the Colony Farm banding station for the practical sessions anytime over the next 12 months as Covid restrictions ease.

Adults: $195 Zoom sessions + $150 2 field trips (optional)
Students: $145 Zoom sessions + $150 2 field trips (optional)

Let's work together to make 2020 the year of local bird preservation and keeping each other healthy and happy! To find out more about our research, conservation, or education, please visit us at
