goose banding

  • We will be banding Geese this year on June 24, 25, and 26
  • Each day meet at 6:00am @ The Pointe Mouillee Office
  • Typically done by noon
  • Wear clothing that can get dirty and stained, long sleeves if you are concerned about getting scratched, boots (rubber boots are better), or hip waders, and if you have chest waders it may be helpful to bring them along. Bug spray, and water are good ideas. We will have soap and disinfectant to wash-up in the field.
  • At this point there are not any restrictions on children, if Avian Influenza is found in geese prior to our banding date then we may have to put some restrictions on children handling the geese.
