Atlantic Puffin & Lobster Overnight II
Atlantic Puffin & Lobster Overnight
Enjoy a dinner of locally caught lobster followed by an evening presentation on seabird conservation in Maine, including an identification primer for the next day’s boat tour to Petit Manan Island. See Atlantic Puffins and other seabirds at close photographic range, and practice counting Common Eider and two species of terns. After returning to the mainland, reflect on the experience over a boxed lunch back at the Schoodic Institute campus. Participants should bring binoculars. A camera (optional) can be fun as all tours are fairly scenic. Spotting scopes are useful but optional and your guide will provide one for group use, as well as guidebooks. None of the tours require strenuous hiking. Birding will be slow moving and on level ground. There may be some spots that are muddy, uneven, and slippery, but large boots are unnecessary. Boat tours can be cold and damp. Bring appropriate clothing.
July 9 @ 5:00 pm - July 10 @ 2:30 pm
