Frontiers in Ornithology

An independent event for youth co-sponsored by DOS

An Event for Youth

DOS co-sponsors this annual youth symposium, currently scheduled for the Ashland Nature Center in Hockessin, DE in September of 2021.  It is a one day symposium focused on avian research and career opportunities.

From the Frontiers in Ornithology Website:

an event for youth ages 13-22 and their mentors.

The primary mission of this event is to focus on ornithology, conservation science and related academic pursuits.

The symposium does not focus on birding, bird identification techniques, or listing birds, but instead on cutting-edge technologies being used in avian research and study, careers in ornithology and how to pursue that focus in higher education, vocationally or avocationally.

Our goal is to educate and inspire youth to take their passion for birds to a higher level.

Join us in 2021 at the Ashland Nature Center in Delaware for a full day of keynotes, speakers, networking opportunities, workshops, and new friends!
