Join our next Brown Bag, April 27, 2017 – Harbingers of spring: wildflowers and migrating birds return to Acadia.
It’s been a long winter with short, cold days and much snow to shovel. But, the days are much longer and warmer now and signs of spring are in the air! Come refresh your memory on some of the spring wildflowers and returning bird species that we haven’t seen in almost a year. Schoodic Institute’s Bird Ecology Director Seth Benz, and Forest Ecology Director Nick Fisichelli lead this fun and informative talk. Moore Auditorium, at Schoodic Institute at Acadia National Park, Winter Harbor. Free and open to the public at Moore Auditorium on the Schoodic Institute campus in Winter Harbor.
