Here at Gilsland Farm Audubon Center a few of the peonies in our formal garden reacted to the most recent full day of sun and decided to say hello! We expect a full show for the Peony Bloom & Ice Cream Social. Join us in honoring long time supporters of Maine Audubon, Wednesday June 13 at 6:30pm

  • Free ice cream courtesy of Toots Ice Cream in N. Yarmouth
  • Music by Flight 317 (acoustic teenage ensemble playing americana grass)
  • Craft book author Heidi Boyd—who will be on hand to help visitors create their own Peony Pixies
  • A drawing for select peony plants from Gilsland Farm’s renowned garden
