This week, People’s United Community Foundation delivered a grant check of $2,500 to support Maine Audubon’s “Bringing Nature Home” Portland Youth Stewardship Initiative.
This money will allow us to engage urban youth in the restoration of native plants and wildlife habitat in city parks and schoolyards.
The first groundhogs (aka woodchucks, whistle pigs, Marmota monax) will be emerging from their burrows soon. When will the first groundhog of the year emerge at Gilsland Farm? Enter your guess in our contest for a chance to win a highly coveted, hard-to-come-by Maine Audubon tote bag!
