Please join us for a night featuring beautiful photos and information about raptor banding on our local, Washington coast with Dr. Dan Varland! Dan, founder and Executive Director of the non-profit Coastal Raptors, will present his 23 years of research, where he and a host of volunteers have captured and banded more than 300 raptors of eight species, including more than 250 Peregrine Falcons and 32 Bald Eagles.

With this wealth of knowledge, he will discuss the conservation importance of banding raptors, including what these birds can tell us about their contaminant levels and disease exposure, as well as their dispersal patterns and migration routes.
