“Hog Island”

Audubon Community Nature Center’s retired president Ruth Lundin will share her experience at last summer’s Raptor Rapture Camp on Hog Island in Maine’s Muscongus Bay. At the 11 a.m. event on Friday, Nov. 1, she will discuss the reintroduction of puffins and the study of the region’s Ospreys.

The gorgeous forests, grasslands and remote islands of mid-coast Maine are home to many hawks, eagles, falcons, vultures, and owls.

National Audubon Society opened its first Hog Island camp in 1936. Jamestown’s own Roger Tory Peterson was the bird instructor.

Programs have been led by some of the most respected naturalists and environmental educators in the nation, inspiring scores of scientists, school and university educators, and conservation leaders. Dr. Rob Bierregaard was one of three experts who led the 2019 Raptor Rapture Camp in July.

Bring a brown bag lunch to share afterward and enjoy the company of the presenters and fellow participants.

The fee for attending ACNC First Friday is $8 or $6 for Nature Center members. Walk-ins are welcome. Registrations are accepted through Thursday, Sept. 5, by calling (716) 569-2345 during business hours or going online to AudubonCNC.org/Programs and clicking “Current Schedule.”
