Date: 3/10/23 11:17 am From: Diane Morton <dianegmorton...> Subject: [cayugabirds-l] Cayuga Bird Club scholarships for youth and educators
The Cayuga Bird Club is making several scholarships available for young
people and educators for our 2023 course, *Spring Ornithology with Steve
Kress*. This eight-week course will be held on Wednesday evenings, March 29
- May 17, 2021, 7 - 9 pm, at Kendal at Ithaca or via Zoom.
We hope to make this course available to a broader audience of people who
may be interested in birds but unable to afford the course fee. Instead of
the full $125 course fee, scholarship recipients will be asked to pay $15,
which will include Cayuga Bird Club membership.
*Applications for youth and young adult scholarships are welcome from young
people ages 14-22.Applications for educator scholarships are welcome from
teachers, naturalists, and other youth mentors.*
Lectures by Dr. Stephen Kress will include discussion of habitat,
migration, courtship, bird family life, and conservation. Each weekly
presentation features a group of birds that are at the peak of their spring
migration, with beautiful photos and sound recordings. Lectures will also
be recorded and shared with participants for later viewing if they are
unable to attend a session, or if they’d just like to watch again to
review. Dr. Kress is renowned for his entertaining and engaging teaching
style, and loves sharing his extensive knowledge of bird life.
Course information and scholarship application forms are available for
download at www.cayugabirdclub.org/spring-ornithology. You may also request
scholarship application materials by emailing <dianegmorton...> The
application deadline is March 17, 2023.
