    Sowing native seeds, making seed bombs and studying local wildlife food webs are excellent tools for engaging students and communities in stewardship, citizen science and advocacy, and promoting social and environmental responsibility.  Join master propagator and educator, Heather McCargo from Wild Seed Project, along with Maine Audubon professional development trainers for a 3-hour workshop (CEUs available) for teachers and community leaders.  Workshop participants will learn to sow several varieties of native seeds for no-maintenance winter propagation, make seed bombs and get a sense of what’s available.  We’ll also enable further exploration of aligning classroom activities and student products that this work can inspire and support.

    CEU certificates and scholarships are available.

    Join us for our annual winter live animal show at Gilsland Farm Audubon Center!

    Our friends at Center for Wildlife will bring furry and feathered guests to Gilsland Farm so that we can get a closer look at some of the wildlife we work to protect.

    The show takes place indoors and is easily accessible for all. Our live animal shows usually sell out, so register soon. Walk-ins welcome if space remains available.
