Aedyn Loefke “My Summer Camp at Hog Island, Maine”
February 27, 2020 @ 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 teen scholarship program. In June, we provided a 100% scholarship award for a week-long educational summer camp on birding conducted by the National Audubon Society at Hog Island, Maine. The recipient of our 2019 Young Birder Scholarship award was Aedyn 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. Aedyn 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 that Hog Island offers that PAS members could attend. Aedyn is an excellent birder and is very active on eBird. He is looking forward to sharing his good time and excellent photos with the generous members of PAS who support our scholarship programs!
Trysten Loefke: “BIRDING COSTA RICA”
In 2017, Trysten Loefke participated in an educational teenager birding camp conducted by the National Audubon Society’s Tropical Teen Week at Camp Selva Verde in Costa Rica. This was a week spent in the jungles of Costa Rica tracking down our migratory warblers in their wintering grounds. Up-close and personal experiences discovering the unique ecology of Neotropical rainforests and innovative conservation efforts. Birds, frogs, sloths and more!
Mark your calendars. Don’t miss this presentation!
