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.

Thursday Morning Bird & Nature Walk


with Doug Hitchcox

Calendar Next session starts Sep 27, 2018 at 7 am
8 additional sessions through Nov 29, 2018

Location: Gilsland Farm

Join us each Thursday for an easy stroll through Maine Audubon’s Gilsland Farm Sanctuary.  We will walk the property primarily looking for birds but won’t ignore any other wildlife or plants. Bring your binoculars and dress to be comfortable outside for two hours. Our total walk is usually 1.8 miles but people can leave early if needed.

We meet near the main parking lot. If you arrive late we are typically by the pond for the first 15-20 minutes before heading into the West Meadow. Walks last approximately 2 hours.

A list of the most recent bird sightings from Gilsland Farm can be found here:
