Birders take note: Hog Island reopening


Orithology sessions with some of the country’s top experts will again be held at Maine Audubon’s Hog Island preserve, on the Pemaquid Peninsula, thanks to Project Puffin.

There are programs for all birding levels (including a session for teens), and two provide opportunities to work directly in the field with Project Puffin biologists on important seabird colony islands. Here’s a snippet from the description:

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 who are dedicated to sharing their knowledge and expertise. They will lead field trips for small groups of 10 to 15 participants, a group size that promotes personal instruction.
