The Hartland Audubon Nature Club encourages Livingston County young people between the ages of 13- 18 to participate in the Michigan Young Birders’ Camp hosted by the Michigan Audubon Society. The Michigan Audubon Society organizes exciting outdoor experiences, from bird banding to exploring state-wide habitats, designed to increase interest in the natural environment, conservation, and ornithology. Participants will learn bird identification tips and techniques and hear from guest speakers on bird-related topics. In addition to a new respect for nature, for many, the camp becomes a life-changing experience.
The week-long overnight camp will be based at Alma College from June 23 -28 and the application period is currently open. The cost is $650 which includes food, lodging and transportation to numerous nature centers, wildlife refuges, and museums. No money is required to apply but the applicant will be contacted to discuss subsequent action. The Hartland Audubon Nature Club is proud to have donated to the need-based scholarships. Enrollment is limited so if you are interested, apply now. Go to the Michigan Audubon Society website, michiganaudubon.org or call (517) 580-7364 for more information.
