Chebacco Chat: Searching for Spelman’s Birds
September 3, 2020 @ 4:30 pm - 5:00 pm
Join science communication specialist Catherine Schmitt in a chat with Tim Garrity of the Mount Desert Island Historical Society about her article “Searching for Spelman’s Birds” in the 2018 issue of the society’s annual magazine, Chebacco.
Henry Spelman led the Ornithology Department of the Champlain Society, a group of student-naturalists who documented the flora and fauna of Mount Desert Island in the 1880s. Charles Townsend was also a member of the ornithology department and is featured in the article, which describes changes in the bird populations of Acadia in the last century and a half.
