2012 program schedule announced

National Audubon has just announced the schedule for next summer’s 5-day residential sessions at Hog Island, to be taught by some of the country’s leading birders, scientists, authors and environmental educators.

Hog Island

The Maine Seabird Biology and Conservation programs provide opportunities to work directly in the field with Project Puffin biologists on important seabird colony islands. New for 2012, we are bringing back one week of Family Camp and a Field Ornithology session with a trip to Monhegan Island.

Building on the traditions of Hog Island’s legendary ornithology instructors, Roger Tory Peterson and Allan D. Cruickshank, today’s instructors are world-class ornithologists and enthusiastic teachers. Group sizes of 10 to 15 participants ensure personalized instruction for all.

Accommodations at Hog Island are in authentic early-20th-century buildings at the edge of the sea. Our renowned chef, Janii Laberge, serves extraordinary meals in an historic farmhouse that looks out onto Muscongus Bay.
