The Beaverhill Bird Observatory’s Geoff Holroyd Young Ornithologists’ Workshop is a week-long workshop to provide teenagers interested in birds with a practical, working knowledge and aesthetic appreciation of birds and their conservation. The Workshop will run from Sunday, July 30 to Saturday, August 5, 2017. Up to 8 participants, ages 15-18 years, will be selected. They will be provided with the opportunity to learn bird banding and identification skills from experienced ornithologists at our field research station east of Tofield, Alberta. While applicants do not have to be top notch birders, they have to share a keen interest in birds and conservation. The BBO will cover all direct costs of the workshop including food, travel for field trips, and professional instruction, but recipients are responsible for their transportation to and from the banding station, tents and sleeping bags. Tents are available for loan if applicants cannot bring their own.

Using our interactive eBird map, you can find out what birds are hanging around the BBO based on sightings from other birders. You can also contribute to this resource by entering your sightings directly to eBird!
