Seabird program set for Nov. 15
Camden — Mid-Coast Audubon presents Stephanie Martin, programs coordinator for the Friends of Maine’s Seabird Islands on Thursday, Nov. 15 at 7 p.m. at the Camden Public Library.
FOMSI is a nonprofit that directly supports the Maine Coastal Islands National Wildlife Refuge in their efforts to conserve, protect, and enhance the rich diversity of coastal habitats, seabirds, and other wildlife. Collaboratively FOMSI and the Refuge have opened a new Visitor Center in downtown Rockland, which showcases the Refuge’s biological efforts, including their summer interns stationed on some of the seabird nesting islands.
Martin has worked for the organization for a year now, and is a Midcoast native. She was also the Mid-Coast Audubon recipient of the 2011 scholarship to Hog Island. She will discuss a little background information about the National Wildlife Refuge System and particularly the local refuge. There will be some biological tidbits as well as general information about some of Maine’s seabirds. Additionally, Martin will speak about the organization’s recent endeavors and the opening of the Visitor Center in Rockland.
Every third Thursday of the month, MCAS sponsors an evening program at the Camden Public Library. For more information visit midcoastaudubon.org.
