Naturalist for Hire

Do you have a special event where you need a naturalist or lecturer? We can travel to you and provide special programming to fit your needs. The following is a sample of how we share our expertise with targeted audiences:
  • A Prairie Home Companion at Sea. With cruises ranging from Alaska to the Mediterranean, we have coordinated all naturalist programming and staff for lectures and outings for each of the cruises beginning 2005.
  • Marine observer services. We are certified by the Maine Department of Marine Resource to work as marine relay observers working with local aquaculture operations.
  • College of the Atlantic Family Nature Camp. We lead birding outings and kayak tours for this summer program.
  • College of the Atlantic Dorr Museum of Natural History. We offer a continuing education course each spring specializing in teaching observation of birds in the field.
  • Local school programs. We offer a youth birding program, designed to engage kids outdoors.
  • Lectures. We have offer lectures to a variety of local organizations, including Downeast Audubon, Mount Desert Island YMCA, Schoodic Education and Research Center Institute, and Somes-Meynell Wildlife Sanctuary.
