The Long Point Bird Observatory is looking for keen teen birders to apply for the 2013 Doug Tarry Natural History Fund – Young Ornithologist Workshop to be held from Saturday August 3 to Sunday August 11.

Participants will receive hands-on training in field ornithology including bird banding, monitoring, field identification, birding trips, preparing museum specimens, guest lectures, and more!

Six of Canada’s most promising ornithologists between the ages of 13-17 will be selected to attend, and will receive the Doug Tarry Bird Study Award to cover all on-site expenses. For those traveling long distances, special grants may also be available to help offset air travel costs.

Applications are due April 30, 2013.
