The Birds of Acadia: Changes in our Avian Population

March 14, 2024, 1:00 p.m.
Richard MacDonald, The Natural History Center

 Local outdoor adventurer, Richard MacDonald, is a world-class naturalist and life-long birder. His training and experience as an ornithologist is enhanced with his credentials of being a
Registered Maine Guide, a Licensed New York Guide and a Wilderness First Responder.

In 2010, MacDonald and Natalie Springuel created The Natural History Center in Bar Harbor
to “share their passion for the ecology and people of this region.” Prior to the founding of the Natural History Center, MacDonald and Springuel went on a five-month educational sea kayak journey which followed the 1,500-mile shore of the entire Gulf of Maine. MacDonald continues
to share his sense of adventure on special nature and adventure tours for the local community and those visiting our area. His expertise on the local bird population will enlighten those who are novice birders as well as the more experienced ones.

The presentation is scheduled for Thursday, March 14 at 1:00 P.M. at Birch Bay
Retirement Village, Bar Harbor. The program will include time for questions and will be followed by a Holiday Tea and club business meeting. All are welcome to attend.

This presentation is one of the monthly programs offered by the Bar Harbor Garden Club to the public. Club members and guests are asked to make a reservation for the program by emailing Barbara Amstutz at or calling /texting her at (215)764-0468.
