The environmental education movement in the United States has early roots at Hog Island. Now celebrating 80 years as an education camp for adults, families, and teens, Hog Island has inspired scores of scientists, school and university educators, and conservation leaders.
Hog Island Audubon Camp programs are operated by the National Audubon Seabird Restoration Program (Project Puffin).
