Seabirds of Matinicus Rock 2020

$100

with Doug Hitchcox

Calendar Next available session starts Jun 12, 2020 at 8 am

Members: $80 Nonmembers: $100

A 32-acre island 18 miles offshore at the mouth of Penobscot Bay, Matinicus Rock is one of Maine’s most important seabird nesting colonies. Here, Atlantic Puffins, Razorbills, Common Murres, Black Guillemots, Arctic and Common Terns, and Laughing Gulls all gather to nest. Motoring out of New Harbor aboard the Hardy III, we’ll cross the mouth of Muscongus Bay, passing close by the seabird colony at Eastern Egg Rock where roseate terns nest. With plenty of open-water habitat along our route, we could see a good array of pelagic species, including Wilson’s Storm-petrels, Northern Gannets, phalaropes, Great and Sooty Shearwaters, Black-legged Kittiwakes, and jaegers.

Borestone Naturalist Weekend 2020

$360

with Gary Roberts

Calendar Next available session starts Jul 24, 2020

Members: $300, Nonmembers: $360

Join this weekend retreat to Borestone Mountain 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.

Hike and learn in this 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.
