    Greetings the Hilliardton Marsh Research and Education center located about 20 minutes from Newliskeard  in North Eastern Ontario. If you have ever dreamed of volunteering in a bird banding station in the boreal forest learning to band boreal birds and extract birds from mist nets this position is for you. We have had great success in our volunteers going on to get jobs in ornithology related fields after training with us . If you are looking for a boreal forest bird adventure this is the place for you. We have spartan living quarters but have room to house four volunteers in a trailer with running water and room to cook. The big draw is the boreal birds that you will encounter plus the opportunity to band ruby throated hummingbirds and potentially road trap american kestrels and rough legged hawks. The volunteers we are looking for enjoys being with people and explaining the banding process to our many visitors and school groups. Our protocol banding begins  May 1st and runs until the 2nd week of June.  While people with birds and banding experience have an advantage we are happy to train" people people"  how to be productive in a banding station. We have attracted volunteers from as far away as England and Egypt and  we have had many volunteers from the eastern US and Ontario. Please direct resumes to Bruce Murphy by email at birdboy369@gmail.com. For more information about the boreal birds you should expect to see and to get a better idea of our education and research goals please visit our website thehilliardtonmarsh.com or our Hilliardton marsh face book page. We will look forward to having you join our spring migration team at the southern edge of the boreal forest.
