Spring Migration has begun!

In mid-April, the LSLBO kicked off our 29th year of migration monitoring on the eastern shores of Lesser Slave Lake. Bander in Charge Robyn Perkins is joined this year by Assistant Bander Bronwyn Robinson, as well as Field Assistant Nola Sheets. It promises to be another great season, so make sure to check out the Weekly Banding Reports  or the LSLBO Facebook page for all the latest news from the lab.

Thank you to all of our sponsors and supporters that enable us to do what we do including: Alberta Conservation Association, West Fraser, Vanderwell Contractors Ltd, Tolko Industries, Environment and Climate Change Canada, Canada Summer Jobs Program, Alberta Parks and our many dedicated members and donors!

Spring Fieldtrips Are Back!

Spring fieldtrips are once again available after an unexpected break due to COVID. The highlight spring fieldtrip for students of any age is a trip to the LSLBO banding station to watch our scientists at work,  learn more about our boreal birds and hopefully see some of these tiny migratory marvels up close. There are also lots of hands-on learning for students including practicing their bird banding and net extraction skills with replica birds.

For information on banding lab tours and other programs  at the Boreal Centre for Bird Conservation,  download our Education Program Brochure or call us at 780-849-8240
