Youth Scholarships Awarded
for the
43nd Annual WFO Conference

WFO occasionally provides competitive scholarships to help young people who are interested in field ornithology attend birding trips or conferences. The Pasadena Audubon/WFO Youth Scholarship Fund was created to honor the memory of Mike San Miguel, a key contributor to and beloved friend of Pasadena Audubon and WFO. Applicants must be students in Grades 6 through 12, residents of western North America, and be members of Western Field Ornithologists.

Congratulations to the eight students who have each been awarded a scholarship to the annual WFO conference being held in Ventura, California September 26–30, 2018. Download the awards page here.

The annual WFO conference is a four-day event that includes scientific presentations, workshops, field trips, experts’ sound and visual identification panels, plus social activities. The conference offers the opportunity for motivated youths to meet those who earn their living and/or volunteer in field ornithology, bird conservation, biology and other distinguished fields.
