Young Ornithologists Wanted

The 2010 Doug Tarry Natural History Fund’s Young Ornithologists’ Workshop will be held at Long Point Bird Observatory near Port Rowan, Ontario, from Friday, July 30 to Sunday, August 8.

Participants will receive hands-on field ornithology training, including bird banding, censusing, field identification, birding trips, preparing museum specimens, guest lectures, and more!

Six of Canada’s most promising ornithologists between the ages of 13-17 will be selected to attend, and will receive the Doug Tarry Bird Study Award to cover all on-site expenses. For those traveling long distances, special grants may also be available to help offset air travel costs.

Applications are due April 30, 2010. For more information and an application form, contact our Landbird Programs Coordinator at lpbo@birdscanada.org, or visit the Bird Studies Canada Long Point Bird Observatory website.
