Register now for the Alan Wormington Young Birders Camp!
The OFO (Ontario Field Ornithologists) summer camp for teen birders and naturalists will take place the second last week of August, Saturday August 17th to Saturday, August 24th. This year will be the camp's third year.
Campers will stay at the Algonquin Wildlife Research Station in the heart of the park. Situated beside a small private lake in an untouched forest, the station is a hub for wildlife researchers and a perfect base for exploring the Algonquin Park natural environment.
Led by professional scientists and guides, the camp is designed to give campers an in-depth experience of the birds, moths, dragonflies, snakes, mushrooms and ecology of the park. Campers will also have an opportunity to learn from the active researchers at the station and practice their wildlife photography skills.
Previous camps have been a lot of fun! Highlights have included canoe trips, wolf howls, mothing and tracking frogs and salamanders during their night time movements.
The cost is $700 for the week which includes accommodations and meals. Please contact Lynne Freeman at firstname.lastname@example.org for further information or if you know about a young birder or naturalist who may be interested.
