Road Scholar
Program #18493ENZ
6 Days | 5 Nights
ACTIVITY LEVEL: Moderately Challenging
EasyFor people looking to exercise their minds more than their bodies. There’s minimal walking and not too many stairs.
ModerateThese programs get you on your feet and include activities such as walking up to a mile in a day through a city and standing in a museum for a few hours.
ActiveFor people who enjoy walking as much as two miles a day, perhaps to explore historic neighborhoods or a nature trail.
Moderately ChallengingFor hardy explorers who enjoy a good physical challenge, spending most of their days on the go.
ChallengingGet ready to keep up with our highest-energy group. These demanding — and rewarding — programs are for seasoned outdoor enthusiasts.
Aid in the hands-on restoration of Maine seabird populations with pioneering researcher Dr. Stephen Kress and the National Audubon Society's internationally renowned Seabird Restoration Program. You'll live on an island sanctuary during this week-long adventure and participate in a side of bird science and conservation that most can only view on television.


Highlights

• Immerse yourself in knowledge about bird identification, banding, adaptations, migration, ecology and conservation led by distinguished ornithologists.
• Journey by boat to Wreck Island and put your seabird ID skills to use with the heron and seabird colonies. On the return, watch for seals, porpoise and small whales.
• Feel the history at Audubon’s Hog Island Camp, the longest running environmental camp in the United States.

Program Notes

So you can get the most out of your experience, all of our birding programs have a maximum participant-to-instructor ratio of 14:1. Road Scholar birding programs are conducted in accordance with the American Birding Association’s Code of Ethics. Learn more at http://www.aba.org/about/ethics.html

Activity Notes

Participants should be capable of walks up to two miles over slippery, rugged terrain; must be able to board and disembark small boats.

Date Notes
