Introduction to the Natural History of Midcoast Maine
with Kristen Lindquist
Maine is noted for its natural beauty and abundant wildlife. Can you identify the song of our state bird? Better yet, can you identify our state bird? (It’s the Black-capped Chickadee.) Ever wondered how to find the North Star? Can you name three wildflowers you might find in the Camden Hills? In this two-session class you will develop basic literacy in the natural history of wildlife-rich midcoast Maine by learning how to identify some of the trees, wildflowers, birds, butterflies, animal tracks, and even stars and constellations most easily found here. Geared for the real beginner, this class will enhance your basic knowledge and awareness of the natural world around you!
