The Indiana Audubon Society and Indiana Young Birders Club will hold its’ 6th Annual Young Birders Conference at the Cool Creek Nature Center in Carmel on August 18. The event includes early morning bird watching, presentations by young birders and naturalists, quizzes and, raffle prizes as part of the daylong event.
A special keynote presentation will feature Teodelina Martelli, a 17 year-old California birder who has been drawing birds since she was three. She will present ‘Notes on the Condor’, highlighting her experience with the conservation of one of the country’s rarest birds. Teodelina was recently awarded the American Birding Association’s young birder of the year award.
Both adults and youth interested in birds and nature will find a diverse set of activities available at this year’s event. The Indiana Young Birders Club was created in 2009 and promotes the excitement of birds and nature exploration for Hoosier youth.
