The Jackson Hole Wildlife Foundation (JHWF) advances wildlife conservation through science, collaboration, and a community of volunteers. As part of its scientific endeavors, the JHWF runs two bird banding stations and monitors a Mountain Bluebird nestbox trail. One of the bird banding stations is located in Grand Teton National Park and has been operating since 1992, making it one of the longest running Monitoring Avian Productivity and Survival (MAPS) stations in the world. Join JHWF’s Hilary Turner as she presents an overview of the banding station’s history, the scientific relevance of bird banding, and some results of the long-term monitoring effort. Hilary will also present some information on the Bluebird trail and JWHF’s other projects. Hilary is originally from Helena, MT, but she now makes her home in Teton Valley, ID, where she spends most of her non-working hours birdwatching.
