Goose Banding

On a yearly basis, our family volunteers to help the local DNR capture and band wild geese on local lakes.

Each spring and fall, hundreds of thousands of Canada geese (not "Canadian" geese) pass through Wisconsin in their famous V-formations, honking up a storm. At the same time, people flock to Wisconsin wetlands to see one of the most amazing wildlife events in the Midwest. But what do we know about geese anyway? Where do they come from and where are they going?
