Come and enjoy an adventure told with brilliant photography.
In June 2013 Ron and Lee Davis spent 10 days paddling the Canning River from the Brooks Range to the Beaufort Sea, north of the Arctic Circle in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge wilderness of Alaska in a quest for adventure and wildlife experiences.
This rigorous trip taxed the endurance and outdoor skills of the 8-person party, but provided sightings of wolves, foxes, caribou, arctic nesting birds, and a profusion of brilliant tundra wildflowers.
Do you have hundreds maybe even thousands of digital photos and are having trouble organizing them? Are you shooting in RAW? Do you need help on how to process multiple digital photos for output to e-mail or web? Want to set up your own photo web gallery?
Join wildlife photographer Shawn Carey of Migration Productions for this one day workshop using Adobe Lightroom. Learn how to manage all of your digital photo/files in a way that makes sense and is easy to learn, plus many shortcuts.
Shawn’s photos have been published in the Boston Globe, New York Times, Mass Audubon Sanctuary magazine, Science magazine, Hawk Mountain Sanctuary magazine and many others over the last 15+ years.
Shawn (Migration Productions) has been presenting programs to birding organizations and at birding events since 1994. (Mass Audubon, ABA, Manomet, HMANA, Eastern Mass Hawk Watch, Hawk Mountain Sanctuary and many local bird and camera clubs). In 1997 he started teaching bird photography workshops (Fundamentals of Bird Photography) for the Massachusetts Audubon and five years ago started teaching a summer three day field school workshop for Mass Audubon Wellfleet Bay.

A 32-acre island 18 miles offshore at the mouth of Penobscot Bay, Matinicus
Rock is one of Maine’s most important seabird nesting colonies. Here, Atlantic Puffins, Razorbills, Common Murres, Black Guillemots, Arctic and Common Terns, and Laughing Gulls all gather to nest.
Motoring out of New Harbor aboard the Hardy III, we’ll cross the mouth of Muscongus Bay, passing close by the seabird colony at Eastern Egg Rock where roseate terns nest. With plenty of open-water habitat along our route, we could see a good array of pelagic species, including Wilson’s Storm-petrels, Northern Gannets, Common Murres, phalaropes, Great and Sooty Shearwaters, Black-legged Kittiwakes, and jaegers.
Jan Pierson is one of the founders of Field Guides and a veteran of more than 35 years of international birding and guiding. He has traveled far and wide to all continents, yet some of his favorite birding experiences remain simple ones: spring warbler migration, savoring good, long looks at birds, be they rare or common, tropical or temperate, and watching other birders thrill at their first-time discoveries.
Peter Vickery is president of the Center for Ecological Research and is currently writing a book on Maine birds. He has authored or coauthored more than 40 scientific research papers and numerous popular articles on natural history and conservation.
