The Long Point Bird Observatory is looking for keen teen birders to apply for the 2011 Doug Tarry Natural History Fund – Young Ornithologist Workshop to be held from Friday, July 29 to Sunday, August 7. Participants will receive hands-on training in field ornithology including bird banding, censusing, 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 15, 2011.
