The Fond du Lac County Audubon Society is excited to offer a summer camp scholarship for a high school age student who is passionate about the environment, conservation, and birds! The student selected will have a once-in-a lifetime experience with other teens from around the country and professional biologists at Hog Island AUDUBON CAMP located off the coast of Maine. Audubon’s mission is to conserve and restore natural ecosystems, focusing on birds, other wildlife, and their habitats for the benefit of humanity and the earth’s biological diversity. Sponsoring a scholarship for a Fond du Lac County teen to attend this unique and educational camp with other teens from around the country is our investment in the future. Scholarship value: $1,295. Dates of camp: June 11–16, 2017.
Coastal Maine Bird Studies for Teens – What Is It About? Coastal Maine Bird Studies is for teens with an avid interest in birds. This intensive 6-day, 5-night program on Hog Island allows enthusiastic young birders to work with some of the country’s best-known birders and ornithologists on field identification, bird ecology and conservation. This program includes the unique opportunity to see Audubon’s seabird restoration work in action, and is the only Hog Island program that lands participants on Eastern Egg Rock during the puffin breeding season (weather and sea conditions permitting).
