Thank you, Brookline Birding Club!
The BBC is pleased to announce that our annual Young Birder Scholarships have been awarded to May Adams of Wales, MA and Jackson Frost of Scituate, MA. These scholarships, instituted to nurture interest in bird study and conservation among young birders, cover the full cost ($1395) of the Coastal Maine Bird Studies for Teens program at National Audubon’s Hog Island camp on June 16-21, 2020. The Scholarship Evaluation Committee was impressed by the high quality of all seven applications we received, and we thank all the applicants for their interest and effort.
Jackson volunteers as a seabird steward for the Stellwagen Bank National Marine Sanctuary, and he takes particular pleasure in turning family members and friends into birders. He hopes to pursue a career in ornithology.
Congratulations, May and Jackson!
