Have you ever wondered about the identity of that hawk soaring on the horizon, or that bird of prey circling overhead? Would you like to fine-tune your hawkwatching skills and learn more about this captivating group of birds? Birds of prey, in their myriad variety of size, shape, and feather patterns, are among the most challenging of birds to identify.

From Texas to Minnesota to Cape May, New Jersey, Erik has worked at hawkwatch sites for more than ten years and is excited to share his passion for raptors!

Make a Donation. Camp attendees do not need to be expert birders but should have an interest in natural history study and observation. VENT youth camps present a rare opportunity for young naturalists to be in the field with their peers and with expert leaders. One scholarship will be awarded each year. Funds for the scholarship are provided by an anonymous donor. The scholarship will be awarded in February. A full scholarship is defined as the cost of the program plus round-trip airfare.
You will buy expensive disability insurance, malpractice insurance, and life insurance to provide a snippet of comfort for the great, unknowable future. I also know that whenever exceptions are made, there are reasons. Which is an absolute lie. I wish there was a mother's support network for us all to join and meet up.
