Young Birders Event at the Cornell Lab

This just in . . .

The Cornell Lab of Ornithology is excited to host The Cornell Lab Young Birders Event, which will be held August 6-9, 2009 in Ithaca, New York. The Young Birders Event aims to bring together teenagers with a passion for birds who are interested in pursing a career with birds. The young birders will meet people who have successful careers that involve birds in a variety of ways from ornithological researchers to tour leaders, to audio specialists and computer scientists. High school aged young birders are invited to fill out our application form and return it for review by May 10th 2009. Ten young birders will be selected and notified in mid-May. Please share this information with any young birders you know!

The Young Birder’s Event will feature:
  • two days of field trips
  • presentations by Cornell Lab of Ornithology staff including professors, researchers, and students who will share various ways to incorporate birds into a career
  • eBird and field notes workshop
  • specimen preparation workshop
  • sound recording workshop
  • tour of CLO including the Macaulay Library and Museum of Vertebrates
  • dinner with CLO Directors and Staff
Details are on the eBird News page. It's a great opportunity, if you're not a young birder, please pass it along to any you may know!
