Mr. Salmansohn will also talk about Tern restoration and some of the many challenges that face wildlife managers in a changing and dynamic eco-system.

Pete Salmansohn began working for Audubon on the Maine Coast in 1980 at the Hog Island Audubon Camp and runs their eco-tourism program, narrating Audubon seabird tours during those months that the puffins are nesting on Eastern Egg Rock. He also directs a residential program on Hog Island each July called Sharing Nature: An Educator’s Week.
This is a free event made possible by the generosity of the members and donors of the Bedford Audubon Society.
