Taking a closer look at birds, avian research, and ornithology as a vocation is the focus of the Frontiers of Ornithology: A Symposium for Youth (American Bittern photo).
Birders aged 13 to 22 will want to attend the upcoming event, “Frontiers in Ornithology, A Symposium for Youth,” on Saturday September 28 at the Ashland Nature Center in Hockessin, Delaware. The focus of the symposium is cutting-edge technologies used in bird research and careers in ornithology. A total of 18 speakers will provide a wealth of information for participants with the goal of educating and inspiring young people to take their passion for birds to a higher level, featuring Scott Weidensaul and other keynote and session speakers.
The Frontiers in Ornithology Symposium is a new event for youth and their mentors. The primary mission of this event will be to focus on ornithology, conservation science, and related academic pursuits. (The symposium will not focus on birding, bird identification techniques, or listing birds.) The event will describe cutting-edge technologies being used in avian research and study, careers in ornithology, and how to pursue that focus in higher education, as a profession, or avocationally.
The goal is to educate and inspire interested youth to take their passion for birds to a higher level on September 28th at the Ashland Nature Center in Delaware, a full day of keynotes, speakers, panel discussions, and new friends at the Frontiers in Ornithology, A Symposium for Youth.
