Looking for more summer camp options this summer? Ontario Field Ornithologists is launching the Alan Wormington Memorial Camp for Young Birders in Algonquin Park. The camp will take place July 8-15 at Algonquin Provincial Park, Ontario. Algonquin Park has been the site of many long-term research projects on fascinating boreal species such as Gray Jays, Spruce Grouse, and Black-backed Woodpeckers, as well as many species of breeding warblers. Students at the camp will learn about advanced identification, field research techniques, and the ecology of the northern ecosystem of Algonquin Park. The camp is for ages 13-18.
