Join us for a "bushel" of fun at the 31st Annual Apple Day Celebration! It’s packed full of fall fun with games, workshops, cider-making and other "a-peeling" activities. Join us in our historic apple orchard to learn about bees and pollinators and why wildlife habitat is at the "core" of our mission!

We "picked" out a few highlights of the day:

Cider Press

Apple Toss

Scavenger Hunt

Book signing: The Maine Play Book with Jennifer Hazard 10-12


Face painting

Music by the "Sea Slugs"

Thank you to L.L. Bean and Sweetser’s Apple Barrel and Orchard for their support of Apple Day.

Scarborough Marsh Fall Clean Up

Calendar Next session starts Oct 20, 2018 at 9 am

Location: Scarborough Marsh

Fall is here and it is time to clean up the marsh, and close down the Nature Center for the season. We will be doing a trash pickup and will also need help getting the nature center and grounds ready for another Maine winter.

This year we are partnering with Project G.R.A.C.E. to collect food. Bring some nonperishable food or a store gift card to the clean up and help the human inhabitants of the marsh.

Join us for a work day and help make our corner of the earth a better place.
