Scholarship available for Family Camp in beautiful Hog Island, Maine

Hog Island Audubon Camp. Photo by Chris Fischer.The Northeast Pennsylvania Audubon Society is offering a free scholarship for an adult and child to attend Family Camp on an island in Maine the week of August 12th to August 17th, 2018. Application deadline is March 15, 2018. Applications are available HERE. 

The camp is designed for families with children ages 8-13 years old (children must be in this age range at the time of camp). The Audubon scholarship is for one child and one related adult. One of the two applicants must reside in Lackawanna, Susquehanna, Wayne or northern Pike County, Pennsylvania. Grandparents, aunts, or uncles are welcome. August 12-
17 is an ideal time to enjoy the natural world along the Maine coast.

The Audubon Family Camp provides a unique opportunity for families to enjoy nature together. The pristine environment on Hog Island, Maine offers a wide variety of habitats for nature study. Campers cruise Muscongus Bay in search of seabirds and seals. They examine aquatic insects and amphibians in a freshwater pond, look for mushrooms and wildflowers in the forest, and search for fish and marine invertebrates along the intertidal zone. Evening programs include night hikes and stargazing. Each day begins with an optional early morning bird walk and ends with a family campfire program filled with songs, stories, and skits.

“We have witnessed how transformative the experience has been over the 30-plus years we have sent people to this wonderful island,” says Audubon board member Pete Snyder. “It permeates deeply into their lives and actions later in life.” One camper said that is was “one of the most memorable of my entire life.”

Conservation Partners present FREE forum on Natural Landscaping

On Tuesday, August 22nd at 7 pm in the Park Street Complex in Honesdale, Ed Perry from the National Wildlife Federation will present a seminar on Neighborly Natural Landscaping: How to decrease mowing and increase pollinators and birds. This workshop will focus on ways each of us can reduce the population decline of bird species and pollinators right in our own backyards. Topics will include a discussion of what to plant, where to plant and where to get your plants, how to start a meadow, and how all this benefits our waterways.

Sarah Hall-Bagdonas, president of the Northeast PA Audubon Society will also present on native versus invasive species for this area. Each attendee will also receive a free “Seeds Ball”. This event is being sponsored by local Wayne/Pike County partners in conservation, SEEDS (Sustainable Energy Education and Development Support), the Northeast PA, Audubon Society, Wayne Conservation District, and Delaware Highlands Conservancy with the National Wildlife Federation.

WHY THIS IS SO IMPORTANT:

The alarming decline of native pollinators has been well documented, but what is less well known, is the decline and potential loss of numerous bird species.  A recent National Audubon Society report states: Our model predicts that 314 North American bird species are seriously threatened by climate change by the end of this century.  

Since our changing climate is already affecting birds and pollinators, anything done to reduce carbon pollution will benefit those species.  For example, running a lawn mower for one hour emits the same amount of carbon pollution as driving a car for one hundred miles, so reduced mowing will not only help rein in carbon pollution, but also help our native birds and pollinators that are already feeling the heat.

WHEN: Tuesday, August 22 at 7:00 pm

WHERE:  Park Street Complex, 648 Park Street in Honesdale, near Wayne Memorial Hospital

SPEAKERS:  Ed Perry, National Wildlife Federation and Sarah Hall Bagdonas – Northeast Audubon Society

PRESENTED BY:  The National Wildlife Federation, SEEDS (Sustainable Energy Education and Development Support), the Northeast PA Audubon Society, Delaware Highlands Conservancy and the Wayne Conservation District.
