Hawk Banding
Body: 

It’s not every day that a high school student has the opportunity to capture raptors for banding. But for Addison County kids that participate in the Diversified Occupation Program it’s a regular part of their science curriculum. The Diversified Occupation Program serves high school students with special academic and behavioral needs. The goal is for each student to graduate with a job in place and skills for independent living. For close to two decades special educator Rodney Olsen has used bird banding to engage students in science, the outdoors and the environment.
