Book Club Facilitators

Eva Matthews Lark - Hog Island Program Manager and Tern the Page Moderator
Eva Matthews Lark has an MS degree in Recreation & Parks Management from Frostburg State University and a BS degree in Environmental Science from Lander University. She works year-around for Hog Island and manages the various social media channels, marketing, and camp registration, in addition to scholarships, contracts, and rentals. She is now the director of our international Costa Rica Teen Camp and the Mountains to Sea Birding for Teens session at Hog Island.  She is a guest speaker for local Audubon chapters and enjoys moderating birding talks online. She has been a birder for over a decade and credits the winter warblers of Florida as being her spark birds.  In her free time she enjoys traveling with her wife and two rescue dogs. She particularly enjoys birding competitions with friends and is an avid eBirder and Fantasy Birder.  Her favorite bird guide is the Sibley Birds East and her favorite bird book is Life List: A Woman's Quest for the World's Most Amazing Birds by Olivia Gentile, about Phoebe Snetsinger's quest to see all the birds in the world.  She loves books about birds and nature and has over 250 titles in her home collection.


Kimberly Keller - Development and Communication Associate for Seabird Institute
Kimberly Keller graduated from Elizabethtown College after studying Music and Business Administration and spent nearly 10 years in the performing arts sector prior to joining Audubon in 2020. As part of the Audubon flock, she works to streamline development processes, increase community engagement through new, local partnerships and create exciting content online and at our facilities. Kim spent her childhood watching migrations with her parents in Central PA, but would not have identified as a “birder” before arriving at Audubon. These days, she relishes soaking in loon calls on the Damariscotta Lake. She rediscovered her love of reading during quarantine and looks forward to diving into birdy books with the Tern the Page Book Club .
