Youth Birding at the DOS

Do you know a teenager or child that has an interest in birds? They may enjoy participating in a new series of youth birding programs being offered by the Delmarva Ornithological Society. We will introduce youth to the basics of birding, expose them to area bird life and highlight the excitement of migration. As many of you know, an interest in birds can lead to a greater overall interest in the outdoors and the environment as a whole.

Youth between the ages of 8 and 17 may participate. DOS will have binoculars available for participants that do not have their own or want to upgrade. Joe Sebastiani and Derek Stoner will lead the trips, along with other birders who may wish to participate.

DOS youth programs are free and transportation costs and equipment are sponsored by DOS. For each trip, we will meet at the Ashland Nature Center in Hockessin, DE. Van transportation is being arranged through the Delaware Nature Society and participants should dress for the weather and bring a bag lunch, drink, and enough spending money for a fast-food snack.

If you know of a friend or family member that would enjoy learning about birding, please contact Joe Sebastiani at (610) 444-1146 or (302) 239-2334 ext. 122.
