Check out this wonderful opportunity for young birders to increase their skills in a weeklong program this summer at

Beaverhill Bird Observatory

from:  http://www.beaverhillbirds.com/

The Beaverhill Bird Observatory’s Geoff Holroyd Young Ornithologists’ Workshop is a week-long workshop to provide teenagers interested in birds with a practical, working knowledge and aesthetic appreciation of birds and their conservation. The Workshop will run from Sunday, July 30 to Saturday, August 5, 2017. Up to 8 participants, ages 15-18 years, will be selected.  They will be provided with the opportunity to learn bird banding and identification skills from experienced ornithologists at our field research station east of Tofield, Alberta.  While applicants do not have to be top notch birders, they have to share a keen interest in birds and conservation.
