Cultural and Natural History of Maine
Grab your binoculars and join renowned Audubon naturalists Mike and Margi Shannon as we devote this week to exploring the natural and cultural history of the coast. In particular we will get off-shore to see pelagic birds such as puffins, auks, shearwaters and petrels. June is also a special time when seal pups are first seen with their mothers hauled out on sunny low-tide ledges. During shore side explorations we’ll see how the remote villages along the coast have been largely shaped by nature. This cruise will be a rich and rare chance to hear about the intertwined history of the wildlife and people that define the uniqueness of the Maine coast.
