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.
