      Hi -- this may be of interest to folks, especially if there are any Hog
      Island alumni out there?...The National Audubon Society has opened
      registration for their famous week-long birding and environmental education
      programs at the historic Audubon Camp in Maine on Hog Island. Instructors
      include Pete Dunne, Kenn Kaufman, Scott Weidensaul, Steve Kress, Lang
      Elliott and many more. Seven programs are being offered -- 4 birding
      programs for adults, a teen birding program, an educator's week, and an
      Audubon Chapter Leadership Program focusing on the Atlantic Flyway
      Initiative. 2011 is the 75th anniversary of programs on Hog Island,
      legendary among birders and environmental educators since the time of Roger
      Tory Peterson, the camp�s first ornithology instructor in 1936.The 2011
      programs are being organized by National Audubon's Seabird Restoration
      Program (Project Puffin), which assumed management of the programs from
      Maine Audubon in 2010 after the programs were cancelled in 2009. In two
      �service-learning� sessions participants will work directly with National
      Audubon biologists from the Seabird Restoration Program to census seabirds
      and restore nesting habitat on offshore seabird islands. All programs
      feature a boat trip to visit restored colonies of Atlantic Puffin and Tern
      (Roseate, Arctic, Common) at Eastern Egg Rock island, as well as workshops,
      evening presentations, expert birding tours, camaraderie, and fabulous
      home-cooked meals (lobster!). Housing is in cabins on the island.For more
      information, photos or to enroll, visit http://hogisland.audubon.org Some
      scholarships are available - check with your local Audubon chapter or
      birding club to see if they are sponsoring an adult or teen camper this
      year.
