Trysten Loefke: “My Summer Camp at Hog Island, Maine”
October 26 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm
Please join us for our interesting monthly program and refreshments. There is a social period beginning at 6:30 pm with the meeting and program getting under way promptly at 7:00 pm.
Palomar Audubon Society has a multifaceted mission, including a community outreach program with several special initiatives. One of these initiatives is our youth scholarship program. In June, we provided a 100% scholarship award for a week-long educational teenager birding camp conducted by the National Audubon Society at Hog Island, Maine. The recipient of this Young Birder scholarship was Trysten Loefke. The week was filled with birding, seabird research, bird banding, instructional lectures, and a great family atmosphere. He also learned about the famous Project Puffin, and got to see the actual Puffins in the field. Trysten is excited to get to tell everyone about the camp, and how these camps aren’t just for teens, but about all of the adult programs they offer that PAS members could attend.
Trysten is 17 yrs old and has been an active member of PAS since age 11. Trysten is an excellent birder and is very active on eBird. He is looking forward to sharing his good time and great photos with the generous members of PAS who support our scholarship programs!
Mark your calendars. Don’t miss this one!
