Journeys in Listening: Birds and More from Acadia and Beyond

April 25 @ 6:30 pm - 7:30 pm

**New Date**

Join us for a journey in listening to wildlife audio recordings from Acadia and beyond, and the stories of adventure and discovery behind them. Laura Sebastianelli is a naturalist with a passion for listening and sound recording. In 2017, she established “Schoodic Notes: Bird Sounds of Acadia,” a collaborative project with Schoodic Institute’s Bird Ecology program. Along with the help of a few other natural sound recordists, the project has archived over 1200 recordings of Acadia’s birds.

In partnership with the Camden Public Library, this will be a free online Zoom presentation starting at 6:30 pm. Use this link to register for this free event.

Laura is also a seasoned educator and wildlife technician. She has long sought opportunities to empower others to develop their knowledge, skills, and experience to understand, connect with, and serve the natural world. She holds a Master of Science in Ecological Teaching and Learning from Lesley University in Cambridge, MA. She created and ran natural and cultural history programs for adults and families through University of Maine Cooperative Extension at Tanglewood 4-H Camp and Learning Center, the National Park Service, and many other organizations. She has also conducted track surveys of Canada Lynx via snowmobile, and howling surveys in search of Gray Wolf, in Maine’s North Woods. Partially retired these days, she spends most of her free time exploring the natural world, and especially recording natural sounds.
