Maine Audubon’s Gilsland Farm Peony Gardens are a famous and beloved feature of the wildlife sanctuary. When they burst into bloom in June, the fragrance fills the air and the colorful flowers announce the start of summer in Maine. Every year we wait and watch and try to guess when the first blooms will emerge. This year it was June 3! We’ve been tracking them with this slide show.
Maine Audubon had the honor of visiting with some nesting Piping Plovers at Popham Beach State Park last week with Maine’s 1st District Congresswoman Chellie Pingree, updating her on our progress protecting these federally threatened shorebirds. Bonus: we got to see the plovers trade places on the nest–watch the video!
Maine Audubon initiatives bring together elements of conservation, community engagement, advocacy, and education.
