CALLING ALL BIRDERS BETWEEN THE AGES OF 14 AND 17
You can attend the
Maine Audubon Society's
Application deadline is February 21, 2014
The Georgia Ornithological Society will send two teens to Maine to take part in a special camp session June 22 - 27, 2014. Don't miss this chance to bird and explore this legendary island located in Maine's famous Muscongus Bay. Learn about seabird conservation from top ornithologists and add puffins, murres, and other coastal birds to your life list. The GOS will cover registration fees and up to $500 reimbursement for travel expenses (scholarship recipients arrange their own travel. Food and lodging is included in the camp registration.) For more information about Hog Island and the camp, visit.
How to apply: The applicant must be at least 14 and no older than 17 during the camp session and must be a Georgia resident. Complete the application form and write an essay (300 word minimum) about your interest in birds and birding, what you will do with the knowledge you will gain, and how you will spread your interest in birds to friends. Include three letters of recommendation with the application. Scholarship recipients are expected to write an article describing their experiences at camp for the GOShawk newsletter.
Deadline for receipt of the application form, essay, and letters of recommendation must be received by February 21, 2014 to be considered. The winners will be selected on March 1, 2014.
