Audubon Camp at Hog Island

The Friends of Hog Island are working to keep the much beloved Hog Island Camp thriving and to prevent the island from being sold to a commercial group. Anyone who has been to Hog Island knows it is a very special place that has changed lives including mine.

Hog Island is many things to the people who have attended sessions there. When asked, some mention specific adventures such as the study of tide pools, the fantastic world renowned staff, the birds, etc. Others say “My life has been so much richer since I attended” or “The experience of Hog Island lasts a lifetime” or “provides an unforgettable experience.” These accolades could go on and on as thousands of campers have been touched deeply by the Hog Island experience. A visit to Hog Island is an inspiration to anyone who cares about conservation and living things.

Each and every donation will help provide life-changing experiences and inspire future generations with the educational mission, ideals, and environmental responsibilities learned at Hog Island. The YCAS Board supports this 501(c)(3) and hope you will donate. Checks should be made payable to Friends of Hog Island and sent to PO Box 242, Bremen ME 04551 or you may donate online.

About Harlequin

Harlequin is a pseudonym for content not attributed to a specific author. It echoes the name of the YCAS newsletter, The Harlequin. Watch for Harlequin Ducks along the rocky portions of the York County coast in winter. ¶ The avatar is by Louis Agassiz Fuertes, who sketched and painted the species during the Harriman Alaska Expedition. ¶ "When we got before the glacier, I saw my first pair of harlequins... the glass showed them plainly to be a ♂ + ♀ histrionicus." — L.A. Fuertes, June 7, 1899
