Come and learn the basics of birding and explore the amazing diversity of bird life here in Utah with our passionate and knowledgeable history teacher, tennis coach, and birder, Ken Wade. We will focus on the experience of birding – finding birds, identifying them, and observing their habitats and behaviors. We will spend minimal time on the Waterford campus learning some bird ID basics and becoming familiar with birding apps and tools. Most of our week together will be spent exploring some of the most well-known birding locations in the Western United States. Working together, we should be able to find and identify close to 100 species! All Class VIII science students at Waterford complete a unit on birds and bird identification, and this camp will give you a great head start.
