Brush with Nature!
In September of 2021, we hosted a juried Plein Air event at all eight of our sanctuaries. Over four days, invited artists spread out across the state to paint, draw, or create work for an Art Auction. Twenty-five paintings were then on display at our Falmouth headquarters for a week, and an online auction of the paintings raised money for Maine Audubon’s education, conservation, and advocacy programs.

The Nature of Craft
We have decided to postpone our craft show, The Nature of Craft: Maine Artisans at Maine Audubon . No decision has been made about summer 2022.
