Over the years, York County Audubon has worked with and sponsored a number of outstanding organizations. As a special treat, we’ll let these friends share their work with brief presentations in a program at the Wells Reserve at 7 pm on Tuesday, October 20th. This will include:
The Center for Wildlife in Cape Neddick focuses on wildlife rehabilitation, treating over 1500 injured animals every year. In this program, they will share “Hawk Eye,” with a special winged guest.
The Natural Resources Council of Maine has been working to protect Maine’s environment for over 50 years. In this program, Executive Director Lisa Pohlman will discuss the proposed Northern Maine National Park and Recreation Area.
Hog Island Audubon Camp. Each year, YCA sponsors a local educator to spend a week at this famed camp. One of the recipients of this year’s June Ficker Hog Island Scholarship will present “Implementing Nature Lessons in Our Schools.”
The Stratton Island Audubon Sanctuary in Saco Bay, is a key nesting refuge for a variety of threatened seabirds, and has the highest diversity of nesting waterbirds of any Maine island. Two hundred and forty species of birds have been seen on and around the island. We’ll get an update on this summer’s activities there.
This diversity will make for an interesting evening. The program will be held in the Mather Auditorium at the Wells Reserve, starting at 7 pm. There’s no charge and all are welcome!
