    Mathias Deming is a highschool student who sought to learn more about the East-West Corridor and produce a film about it.  Mathias describes the film as, “A short documentary about the proposed east/west corridor in the state of Maine. East/west ME highlights major hopes and concerns that surround this very controversial topic . The film follows me as I learned about the corridor, interviewing various people with a variety of viewpoints and ideas. The hope is that this film will educate and raise awareness about the east/west corridor.” Join us this month for a discussion with Mathias and a showing of his documentary.

    The ‘Naturalist Forum’ are monthly offerings at Gilsland Farm in Falmouth, free to members, to connect you with a variety of nature based programming. Each program will be on the second Wednesday of the month unless otherwise noted.

  • Sunset Puffin Cruise I 2015

    • Location: New Harbor, ME
    • Members: $35 Non-members: $50

    Atlantic PuffinWith its colorful, clown-like face and oversized bill, the Atlantic puffin has become one of the Maine coast’s most celebrated icons—a remarkable accomplishment for a species that had nearly disappeared from the state a century ago. Its resurgence is a testament to the dedication of Audubon biologists who led the way in reestablishing Maine’s seabird colonies, including Eastern Egg Rock at the mouth of Muscongus Bay.

    This popular evening boat ride sails out of New Harbor to Eastern Egg Rock, where we will circle the island several times for great views of puffins, terns, and other seabirds. The boat returns to the harbor at sunset to combine birding and a lovely summer evening on the Maine coast.
