I'm the Board Secretary for the Friends of Hunt Hill Audubon Sanctuary
in Sarona, WI and I'm hoping you'd be willing to spread the word about
our 2nd annual Northwoods Birding Camp.  Our first birding camp last
year was a HUGE success and we're excited for this second year.  In an
attempt to do some "grassroots" advertising I thought perhaps you
could share this event with interested staff, friends or any others
you think would be interested.  Thanks so much!

Hunt Hill Audubon Sanctuary Northwoods Birding Camp:
Friday, June 15 – Friday, June 22
Registration Deadline: May 18
Join Hunt Hill Audubon Sanctuary for the 2nd annual Northwoods Birding
Camp!  This will prove to be a great experience for adults interested
in discovering and expanding their understanding of our feathered
friends.  Campers will enjoy a full yet flexible schedule filled with
opportunities to hike, bird watch, learn from locally and nationally
known birding experts, explore the birding opportunities in the local
area on optional field trips, relax in a beautiful and serene setting
and so much more.  Last year nesting pairs of Golden-winged Warblers
were discovered!  If you can’t attend the whole week, just join us

Camp is geared towards beginning and intermediate birders, but is open
to all levels of bird-lovers! For an in-depth birding experience be
sure to attend all week, if your schedule doesn’t allow for that (or
you want to save some money) you can visit for just the weekend.

Camp presenters are set to include: Laura Erickson of Cornell Lab of
Ornithology and “For the Birds” radio program, Steve Betchkal
award-winning journalist and author of All of This and Robins Too: A
Guide to the 50 or so Best Places to Find Birds in Wisconsin, Bruce
Bacon retired WDNR bird bander, Terry Dorsey former National Audubon
Camp Director and Chris Cold of the WDNR a wildlife technician and
educator, falconer, and bird bander.
