Many visitors enjoyed the gardens, the wildlife, Toots Ice Cream, listened to nice music by Flight 317, and, a lucky handful won a door prize heirloom peony plant presented by Sam Ladd, President of People’s United Bank  Southern Maine who generously sponsored this event.

Most of all, thanks to the Peony Circle of Friends, over 1,600 committed members, donors, and volunteers who have supported Maine Audubon for more than 20 years.
