Have you ever visited our bird banding station at the Coyote Creek Field Station (CCFS), toured our mist nets, and seen birds up close and "in the hand?" Do you value long-term datasets that help scientists understand how changes in habitat and climate may be impacting birds? Do you want students to have the chance to see biologists in action and explore science as a career? Support our 2021 Band-a-Thon, a special campaign to raise money for our field station. You can make a lump sum donation or pledge to donate a certain amount per bird we capture at CCFS during the Band-a-Thon month. Participants can also play our new BirbGo game and test their knowledge about the birds that frequent our banding station. Donations of $75 or more are eligible to receive our 2021 CFC T-Shirt!
