Powdermill Avian Research Center (www.powdermillarc.org) is pleased to announce that it will be hosting its second workshop on Motus technology beginning 5pm Friday October 5th, and ending 2pm Sunday October 7th 2018. The workshop will be held at Powdermill Nature Reserve, the field station of the Carnegie Museum of Natural History (Pittsburgh) located in the beautiful mountains of Western Pennsylvania near Rector. The workshop is aimed towards those with little or no experience utilizing nanotags and the Motus Wildlife Network. Participants will gain hands on experience setting up a Motus station and attaching nanotags to live birds (for participants sub-permitted to band birds). Presentations will focus on project planning, examples of how the network has been used for research, and limitations of the technology. Workshop registration is $275 and includes meals Friday evening through Sunday morning, and shared housing in modest cabins on property free of charge (bring your own linens). We are also offering a “build your own sensorgnome” option for an additional $225, you can learn to build you own sensorgnome and then take it home with you at the end of the workshop. If you wish to stay elsewhere, standard accommodations are available at several nearby hotels for approximately $100 per night. Participants will be responsible for their own transportation.
