Entering Grades 6-8

Take your interest in birds to the next level with this camp.  From hikes to boat trips we will be learning about the many species of birds that call our area home. We will teach you how to identify birds by their song and appearance.  You will also get the chance to observe a bird banding research project. Bring your binoculars and your camera for a fun week long adventure ending with an owl prowl on Friday night!
