The mission of the Birmingham Audubon Society is to promote the conservation and greater knowledge of birds, as well as other wildlife. In support of this mission, the Birmingham Audubon Society is pleased to offer scholarships to educators in the greater Birmingham area to attend the Birmingham Audubon Society's Audubon Mountain Workshop in Mentone, Alabama.
The Audubon Mountain Workshop is a four-day camp focusing on the ecology and natural history of Alabama. The subject matter covers a broad range of topics including beginning and advanced bird identification, wildflowers, mammals, stream biology, insects, reptiles and amphibians, geology and fossils, canoeing, and mountain crafts, among others. Most classes are conducted in the field, and provide an opportunity for in-depth study of the subject matter. The classes are not intended to be teaching methodology courses. The Workshop is being held May 9-12, 2013, at Alpine Camp in Mentone, Alabama. The workshop begins with check-in Thursday afternoon, May 9th, and ends at noon on Sunday, May 12th, allowing teachers to miss just one day of school. The scholarship covers the entire cost of tuition. Scholarship recipients are required to submit a check payable to the Audubon Mountain Workshop in the amount of $150.00. The check will be returned after receiving a completed workshop evaluation from the scholarship recipient.
