The Cornell Lab of Ornithology’s Young Birders Event

This event is a great opportunity for any rising high school sophomores, juniors, or seniors that have a passion for birds and want to find out more about careers that involve them. The participants in the event will be able to bird with skilled birders from the Cornell Lab of Ornithology as well as meet with experienced Lab of Ornithology staff that have incorporated birds into their occupations. Applications come out in early February so please apply to this amazing event!
