Event has passed

    Mid-Coast Audubon will host the next program in its nature talk series, in partnership with Camden Public Library, ‘Journeys in Listening: Birds and More from Acadia and Beyond’ with speaker Laura Sebastianelli. The event is scheduled for Thursday, April 25, at 6:30 p.m., and will take place virtually via Zoom.

    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.

    This event is free and open to the public. Registration details are available on Mid-Coast Audubon's website at

    Sebastianelli 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, Massachusetts. 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.
