If you have been thinking about signing up for Audubon Camp in Maine summer programs on Hog Island, now is the time to act! All adult programs are filling fast and the teen program is wait-list only.
And, the early bird discount ends at midnight this Saturday (January 15th). All registrations made online or postmarked by the 15th qualify for this discount.
While the puffins are floating far at sea and terns are at their winter homes in the southern hemisphere, the Project Puffin staff is busy organizing for the coming summer. To participate in hands-on field work at Project Puffin islands and learn more about seabirds, consider joining us for a five day program at Hog Island this coming summer. If you have been considering joining us, but needed the New Year and longer days to bring your plans into focus, then sign up now and take advantage of our early bird discount.
See our website to learn how you can make your way to Hog Island this summer!
Your instructors will be some of America’s best known birders, including Kenn Kaufman, Pete Dunne, Scott Weidensaul and Steve Kress. Bird lovers of all abilities will enjoy boat trips to visit the restored puffin and tern colonies, guided hikes to freshwater and saltwater marshes and blueberry barrens. Even the 330-acre spruce forest surrounding your cabin home on the island is superb birding habitat.
In addition, special sessions are offered this year are Sharing Nature: An Educator’s Week (July 14-19) for educators working with students of all ages, and an Audubon Chapter Leadership Program (August 15-20) for enthusiastic Audubon members and chapter leaders.
Scholarship opportunities are also available for many sessions. Information about how your bird club or Audubon Chapter can sponsor a camper for this year’s programs can be found here.
