Join us for The Nature of Maine, an exciting new series of field trips that explore Maine’s natural history through hands-on explorations! Our first trip will venture to Acadia National Park to explore the rocky intertidal zones, mud flats, salt marshes, and spruce-fir forests of Acadia’s stunning coast.

Our guide will be Ron Davis, Professor Emeritus at the Climate Change Institute at the University of Maine.

We’ll meet at Fields Pond Audubon Center in Holden and travel by van to the coast. Participants should be able to negotiate the irregular, slippery surfaces of the rocky intertidal zone. Bring water, snacks, and a picnic lunch. Rubber boots are recommended for the mud flats. The group will have dinner together at a local lobster pound before returning to Fields Pond (dinner cost not included).

The cost for this trip is $60 for Maine Audubon members, $80 for non-members. Inclement weather date: Sunday, September 23, 7 a.m.- 9 p.m.
