*POSTPONED* Tracking Biodiversity in Acadia’s Coastal Refuge

Thursday, March 8 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Due to the storm, this talk will not take place on Thursday, March 8. We will be working with Mr. Benz and the Midcoast Maine Audubon to find a date that works for everyone – stay tuned for the announcement! If you have any questions, please email Cayla at cmiller@librarycamden.org.
 

Efforts to track biodiversity along Maine Coast’s Acadia Region go back hundreds of years. From historic records through contemporary projects citizen scientists have been instrumental in gathering gobs of information. This presentation will provide an overview of some exciting projects and what is being learned, with particular emphasis on the interactions of plants, insects, and birds – and how people from around the world are working with and learning from local land trusts.

Presenter: Seth Benz, former director of Hog Island Audubon Camp, and current director of Schoodic Institute at Acadia National Park’s Bird Ecology Program. In his current role, Seth coordinates citizen scientists’ efforts to monitor bird migrations, pelagic seabird concentrations, and biodiversity observations in the Acadia Region. Seth also leads natural history tours in partnership with Maine Birding Trail’s Bob Duchesne. Co-Sponsored by the MidCoast Maine Audubon.
