Summer is here!
We are two weeks away from our first 2014 field school - PA Bucktails - and we can't wait! We wanted to give you an update on where we were at. Here are the details...
We have 12 amazing adult mentors participating in the field schools - many who are school teachers.
We have 46 high school students enrolled - 35 Boys, 11 girls coming from 27 counties across Pennsylvania!
We have 12 returning students from the class of 2013 who have excelled in their outreach and will serve as youth mentors to the new class of Bucktails, Brookies and Drummers students.
Thank you so much for helping us have the best year in recruitment yet and changing the lives of so many kids!
BUT WAIT! We aren't quite done yet!
We still have 9 spots available in our PA Drummers field school for boys and girls! (And there is still time to apply!)
PA Drummers focuses on our state bird, the Ruffed Grouse! Ruffed Grouse Society biologist Linda Ordiway will be with us for the week along with many other expert instructors. Students will learn about grouse anatomy, early successional habitat, watch a field dog training demo, visit a bird banding facility and so much more!
The DETAILS: PA DRUMMERS, July 22-26 at Powdermill Nature Reserve in Westmoreland County (near Ligonier)
This is the first year that we have all three camps - more opportunities than ever to reach the next generation! Will you help us fill our PA Drummers field school by sharing this email? Click here to forward to a friend, neighbor or parent.
