- Borestone Mountain Naturalist Weekend
- Members: $225 Non-members: $250
Join Maine Audubon Naturalist Doug Hitchcox and Registered Maine Guide Gary Roberts on a trip to Borestone Mountain Sanctuary, located just 20 miles south of Moosehead Lake.
On this weekend retreat we will stay in the sanctuary’s historic Adirondack style lodges, which are accessible only by boat or on foot, lending an extra sense of remoteness and tranquility to this special place.
The sanctuary is a 1600 acre North Woods preserve with outstanding natural features. Centered around rock-topped Borestone Mountain, the sanctuary encompasses remarkable granite outcroppings and cliffs, clear mountain ponds, and old growth forest stands carpeted by luxuriant mosses and lichens.
Optional activities will include taking moderate hikes to Borestone’s bare granite summit and to Peregrine Ridge where we will enjoy panoramic views of Maine’s vast northern forest, swimming and canoeing in the sanctuary’s mountain ponds, or if you prefer just relaxing on the lodge porch with a good book.
Price for the weekend includes room and board.

Come and experience Alaska – the expanses of tundra covering the plains, hills and mountains provide a breathtaking backdrop for birding and wildlife adventures.
Maine travelers marveled at the brilliant breeding plumages of 75 species of birds, and were astonished by the herds of reindeer and muskox grazing the tundra. Bird species and large grazers, as well as grizzly bears were photographed from a safe distance.
