We will start on Saturday June 13 @ 1pm and end on Sunday June 14 @ 11a.  Dinner on Saturday and breakfast and light lunch will be included on Sunday.

This event will target young birders and naturalists between the ages of 9-18.  All participants will be required to have a parent or guardian on the property at all times unless otherwise arranged.  Participants are encouraged to camp in the primitive campground.
