Educational programs

Each summer, Hog Island Audubon  camp hosts educational programs focused on ornithology, ecology, and conservation. They feature world-class instructors and are available to people of any age.

The 2018 line-up is another blockbuster.  Each program will  expand your birding experience and knowledge. Or, if you’re not a birder you’ll still find something to enjoy and learn. Family Camp is always a hit and now there are two sessions. Don’t hesitate to register for a program before all the spots are gone.

Hog Island also has a new “away” session Teen Week in Costa Rica, July 30-August 4. This one is a must for teens.

Below is the schedule for 2018, starting with Spring Migration and Monhegan Island, May 27-June 1  and ending with Fall Migration and Monhegan Island on September 9-14.

  1. Hello Juanita!
    Thank you for such a lovely Christmas card and your good wishes. I’m sending a donation via this website to help, in a small way, to help with the wonderful work you do for Hog Island. My son, Chris, hopes to come for his first visit to Hog Island this year. You’ll recognise him by the English accent!
    Happy New Year,
    Liza O’Neal

    • Hello Liza, Glad you enjoyed the card! This is exciting news that your son will be coming for his first visit to Hog Island. I look forward to meeting him. Happy New Year – Juanita
