A week of intensive, hands-on bird study, co-hosted by biologists from the Environmental Resilience Institute and the Midwest Center for Birds and Biodiversity. Campers will catch wild birds in mist nets, record data points on each, and release them back into nature. Demonstrations and activities will aid in campers’ understanding of bird ecology, anatomy, migration, flight, and identification. Camp will take place rain or shine, so bring appropriate gear.
