Bird Feeding Celebration
Join Maine Audubon in preparing to celebrate National Bird Feeding month in February!
Transform your backyard into a bird sanctuary with the help of The Nature Store.
Offering food and water nurtures birds through the harsh winter, and allows us the chance to observe them up close. This is also an excellent opportunity to introduce kids to the natural world right outside our windows. Join us for tips on how!
We will be offering informal talks throughout the day.
Staff will be on hand to answer your questions.
Groundhog Day Celebration
Shadow or no shadow?? Will winter end soon, or should we expect 6 more weeks? Punxsatawney Phil is famous for his winter predictions but do you know about our very own Rosewood and all our other groundhogs at Gilsland Farm?
Come visit us for a fun morning of learning about groundhogs, whistle pigs and woodchucks! We'll have books, kids activities and a presentation by Dr. Christine Maher, who has been studying our Gilsland Farm groundhogs for over 20 years.
