Specific donation options:

1.We have a ‘Sponsor-a-Net’ program. Annual donations of $150 will go toward supporting a specific mist net (replacing old nets and supplies associated with mist nets). A plaque with the donor’s name will be placed near the mist net. At the end of the season the donor will receive a list of all the species captured in that particular net. It is a great way to show your support for Burke Lake Banding Station!
