Erica McGrath, a Pittsburgh area native, recently became part of the seasonal staff at Pickering Creek Audubon Center, Easton, MD. She joins four fulltime staff members who are focusing their efforts on teaching education programs on the Chesapeake Bay to elementary and middle school students at Talbot County Public Schools, helping the center reach 7,800 program contacts this fall.

Erica first became interested in the outdoors through attending Oglebay Institute’s Junior Nature Camp, based in the hills of neighboring West Virginia. She grew particularly interested in birds, and enjoyed hosting bird walks for campers and leading campfire songs and stories.

Junior Nature Camp 2012 will run from July 22 – August 4. The tradition of the Oglebay Institute camping program is based around generous volunteers and supporters offering their time and resources to improve the lives and knowledge of young people. Donations are used to purchase equipment such as spotting scopes, nets, and radios or supplies to enhance the JNC experience. Please consider an annual donation to Junior Nature Camp to directly impact the quality of the camp and ensure that it provides future opportunities to campers like Erica! Visit www.juniornaturecamp.org for more information.
