Belfast Free Library, 6:30-8:00 pm, free and open to all, held on the 3rd Thursday of each month
April 19, Thursday, 6:30 The State of Maine’s Environment, Current and Future. Lisa Pohlmann, PhD, Executive Director of the Natural Resources Council of Maine, will update us on what is happening to Maine’s landscape, and what may happen in the near future. NRCM is Maine’s premier conservation watchdog, without which the state would be very different.
May 17, Thursday, 6:30 Grasses of Maine. Back by popular demand, Matt Arsenault, co-author of Grasses of Maine, will teach us with pictures and live specimens, the grasses we can expect to see as we walk around our area. Last year Matt taught us from his book Sedges of Maine. The new book on grasses will be published in time for the program.
Have you ever seen a Red-throated Loon? A Barrows Golden-eye? An Iceland Gull?
Join Ron Harrell and Gary Gulezian on the Belfast Footbridge each month to watch ducks, loons, and other birds in the harbor. Winter is the best season for harbor wildlife.
Ron and Gary make learning them easy and fun. Bring binoculars, look through their scopes, and wear warm layers.
