We are proud to be hosting BTO Bird Camps in all four countries again!
BTO Youth are organising Bird Camps in England, Wales and Northern Ireland, and partnering with our friends at SOC for a fourth camp in Scotland.
We are recruiting new Youth Advisory Panel members!
The Youth Advisory Panel (YAP) is made up of young volunteers, who work to make sure that young people are well-represented in BTO and BTO’s work.
“Being part of BTO Youth means belonging to a community who have a shared passion for both nature and youth engagement: a community that values the opinions of everyone and is open to innovative ideas.”
Emma, Youth Advisory Panel Member
