About Register for Young Naturalist Program - 2023

Sign up early and make sure you have a spot! Enrollment is limited to 15 students per session.  Sessions run Monday through Friday, from 9:00 am to 3:30 pm. Early drop-off or late pick-up can be arranged for a fee. We encourage carpooling. 

Contact George-Ann Maxson (218-586-3414), [email protected] if you have any questions, are concerned about special needs your child may have, or want to be put on a waiting list if a session is full. CHECK THE YNP WEBPAGE FOR UPDATED AVAILABILITY. Partial scholarship funds are available. Call for more information.

Discounts for MHAS Audubon members & siblings!  Receive a 10% discount if you are a MHAS Audubon member, or 10% discount for siblings. Enter the promo code: "MHAS Member", or "Sibling" during checkout to get your discount. Go to our "JOIN MHAS" webpage and become a member today. 

If you prefer to send us a check rather than paying on-line with your credit card, use the promo code "Sending Check" during checkout, Checks should be made out to: Mississippi Headwaters Audubon Society, and mailed to PO Box 193, Bemidji, MN  56619. (Your emailed receipt will show a Registration Total of $0, but you should send us a check for the total amount you registered for.) You can only enter one discount code, so if you are using the code "Sending Check" and also want to use "MHAS Member" or "Sibling", enter "Sending Check" during registration and reduce the fee by 10% of the total amount when filling out your check. Add a note in the envelope that you are eligible for the MHAS Member or Sibling discount.

You can also register multiple children for the same session and/or sign them up for different sessions during the registration process. Just add these to your Cart as you go. You will pay for everyone together at the end. Full refunds will be offered up until 7 days before a session begins.

Please consider whether you can make an additional donation to help keep the Young Naturalist Program growing and accessible to everyone. You can do this during the registration processWe have been keeping our registration fees as low as possible to make YNP accessible to all area youth. This means we need to find other ways to help cover expenses like replacing canoes, lifejackets, binoculars, aquatic nets, or providing campers new types of adventures. All contributions will go directly to supporting YNP!

Please enter the parent/guardian's name and contact information under 'Your Details' when registering (not your child's name). You will be asked for your child's name and grade later in the registration process.
