The 2012 Mid-Atlantic Young Birder Conference held last fall in Hockessin, Delaware, was a ton of fun for everyone involved, ABA staff and young birders alike.

We were joined by 140 young birders, along with a who's who of speakers and friends including 2012 ABA Young Birder of the Year Marie McGee, Birdwatcher's Digest editor Bill Thompson III, and Leica Optics rep Jeff Bouton, all of whom came away talking about how inspiring it was to be among so many skilled young naturalists and birders. 

We're excited to build on that success and announce this year's edition of the Young Birder Conference, to be held once again at Ashland Nature Center in Hockessin, Delaware, on September 14, 2013. We hope to see old friends and to welcome new faces excited for the opportunity to bird among their peers. 


More information will be coming soon, but in the meanwhile get the date on your calendar and plan on joining us in Delaware!
