Hog Island Audubon Camp

 Situated on a 330-acre island sanctuary, the camp offers a variety of adult, youth and teen programs focusing on the natural history of coastal Maine, in a setting of unmatched natural beauty (and some of the best food you'll ever taste). Scott Weidensaul directs the Hog Island ornithology program, and is a strong supporter of Audubon's mission of conservation and environmental education.

 For more information about the Hog Island camp, visit the Project Puffin website. If you're a Hog Island alum, consider joining the Friends of Hog Island, which provides support for the insitution, and keeps thousands of former Hog Island campers in touch with their favorite island. For information about sessions Scott Weidensaul will be directing in the upcoming year, check out Trips, Excursions and Camps page.
