A new scholarship from Wildside Nature Tours will provide financial assistance for OYBC members to attend Coastal Maine Bird Studies for Teens on Hog Island. Heartfelt thanks to Kevin and his team at Wildside Nature Tours for supporting young birders with this incredible scholarship fund and opportunity. The first scholarship will be awarded in 2020; the scholarship guidelines and application forms will be available online in the near future.

Helping to fledge the next generation of birders!
Donations collected by the team at Zeiss over the course of the Biggest Week in American Birding raised $1,200 to support the club! But the support didn’t stop there!
Zeiss also made a pledge that for each VICTORY SF Binocular that was purchased through Time & Optics Ltd. during the month of May, ZEISS Birding would donate a TERRA ED 8x32 to the Ohio Young Birders Club. Thanks to this very special promotion, the OYBC will receive 24 TERRA binoculars!! We will use a portion of the optics for service learning and giving back to our community that shows the OYBC such tremendous support.
