Terns on Jenny Island
Hog Island Audubon Camp has been a destination for educators, families, teens, birdwatchers, and ornithologists for over 80 years. Starting with our first bird life instructor, Roger Tory Peterson, to our current director Dr. Stephen Kress, Hog Island Audubon Camp has been on the forefront of birding and nature programming. With a bird list of over 200 species, Hog Island is a special place where Black Guillemots lap the island and you go to sleep to the sound of Common Loon cries. It is also the home to Rachel and Steve, a pair of Osprey that have become popular via an explore.org partnership. We hope you are inspired to join us on Hog Island for a life-changing experience!
