Hog Island Audubon Camp is a residential learning center, located just a quarter-mile off the Maine coast in Bremen. Founded in 1936, it featured Roger Tory Peterson as its first birding instructor. Many well-known naturalists serve on its current staff, including Stephen Kress, Charlie Duncan, Pete Dunne, Laura Erickson, and Maine Audubon’s own Doug Hitchcox. Hog Island offers programs for families, teens and adults throughout late spring and summer, focusing on different aspects of environmental awareness, education, fieldwork, and artwork related to Maine’s coastal species and habitats. Sandra Mitchell, a Registered Maine Guide, skilled outdoorswoman, and avid birder, enrolled in a Hog Island session on bird migration last year. She will present a slide show describing the history of the camp, its diverse program selection, and highlights from her own learning experience on Hog Island.
