Borestone Naturalist Weekend – Fall 2023

ONE spot just opened up!  Grab it while you can!

Join this weekend retreat to Borestone Mountain Audubon Sanctuary, located just 20 miles south of Moosehead Lake. There 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.
