Mid-Coast Audubon will host Kirk Gentalen, who will present “Owls are Easy” at 7 p.m. Tuesday, Feb. 13, at Camden Public Library, 55 Main St., according to a news release from Mid-Coast Audobon.

For the past 25 years Gentalen has been an active owl watcher. “I especially like owls because if you want to see them, you often have to meet them halfway,” Gentalen said, according to the release. “But with a little discipline and effort your chances of finding them increase.”

Mid-Coast Audubon, Maine Coast Heritage Trust and Gentalen will present a night of information, photos and stories about owls in general and along the coast of Maine.

Gentalen has lived and worked as a naturalist in 14 states leading environmental education and ecotourism programs for children of all ages.

He is as a regional steward and naturalist for the Maine Coast Heritage Trust out on Vinalhaven Island, and has led explorations for MCHT up and down the coast for the last 10 years. He also edits the “Vinalhaven Sightings Report” blog (vinalhavensightings.blogspot.com) and writes the “Nature Bummin’ with Kirk Gentalen” column for the St. George Dragon.

Donations are encouraged. For more information, call the library at 236-3440.
