Wildlife Explorer Camp - UMLY - 2020

Trek through some of the region's most beautiful open space to explore the worlds of bird watching, hiking, scientific observation, and of course, adventure! Each session will feature three field trips (including a canoeing adventure trip) plus two days exploring UMLY's Cassatt Preserve, where over 130 species of birds have been observed! Campers will also get up close views of the birds of prey housed at UMLY's Raptor Center. Our experienced birding staff will cover the basics of wild bird identification and behaviors, and campers will learn how to use binoculars, spotting scopes, field guides, cameras, apps and other tools for birding and wildlife observation. Please note all trips are subject to change. Week 2 field trips: Hibernia Park, Ridley Creek State Park, Canoe Trip on Brandywine
