Calling Young Birders!
OFO Young Birders for ages 9 - 19
OFO runs field trips and workshops across the province for young birders aged 9 -19. The only prerequisites are enthusiasm and curiosity about birds. These trips are a great way to meet other young birders who share your interests as well as to learn more about birds and where to find them.
Please email Lynne Freeman at email@example.com to get on the Young Birders email list.
