The Speaker Series Continues with Avian Haven

Wednesday, June 14.
at 6:30 p.m.
“Lessons from Avian Haven Wild Bird Rehabilitation Center: A Citizen’s Guide to Helping the Birds of Maine.”

Laura Suomi-Lecker, education and outreach coordinator, will discuss common reasons why birds are admitted to Avian Haven Wild Bird Rehabilitation Center in Freedom and what citizens can do to help our local birds.  We’ll discuss the facilities and recent cases at Avian Haven.  2016 admissions include orphaned and injured eagles, owls, hawks, water birds, including gannets, loons, guillemots, petrels, and ducks, and many species of songbirds.   Laura Suomi-Lecker is the education and outreach coordinator and long-time volunteer with Avian Haven and also the Technical Director at Somerset County Soil and Water Conservation District, where she does a variety of bird-related education and outreach.

The programs are open to the public. There is a recommended donation of $5.00. They take place on the second Wednesday of every month at 6:30 p.m. at 93 Main Cafe,  93 Main St., Unity. For more information, please contact info@sebasticookrlt.org or phone 207-948 -3766
