On Wednesday, June 14, 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 local birds. They’ll discuss the facilities and recent cases at Avian Haven. Admissions since 2016 have included 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 talk is part of the Sebasticook Regional Land Trust’s monthly speaker series, “Restoring Connections to Place,” featuring a wide variety of conservation topics of interest to Maine. The programs are held at 6:30 p.m., on the second Wednesday of every month at 93 Main, a coffee shop located at 93 Main St., in Unity. A $5 donation is suggested. For more information, please email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 948-3766.
