Outreach & Education

Part of our mission is to engage with the local community to provide opportunities to connect with nature through hands-on experiences. This creates enthusiasm and appreciation for our natural resources and fosters an intrinsic value of wildlife.

Our biggest outreach happens at the Burke Lake Banding Station and we highly encourage schools, clubs, and other organizations to arrange for visits to the station during our field season. Here, visitors can observe scientific research and field biologists in action, as well as gain hands- on experience with the incredible diversity of birds we capture.


Burke Lake also conducts outreach events at local schools:
