    Give back to the Earth this year by helping Scarborough be a cleaner and healthier place for all its inhabitants and celebrate Earth Day by being part of the marsh clean up!

    As spring approaches it is time to clean up the marsh, the Nature Center, and the grounds for the new season. Join Maine Audubon, Friends of Scarborough Marsh, and the Scarborough community for a work day, and help make our corner of the earth a better place.  Bring a friend, your family or community group.

    This year we are partnering again with Project G.R.A.C.E in Scarborough to help not only the marsh, but the people of Scarborough. Support a neighbor by bringing canned and staple foods or grocery gift cards when you come for the clean-up.
