Come join us as Chewonki presents their Owls of Maine program. Three live owls are the highlight of this program, which introduces participants to the owls native to Maine and New England. Beginning with slides and sounds, participants will learn the identifying characteristics and calls of each owl. Then, using talons, wings, and skulls, we explore the adaptations of these silent nocturnal hunters. This program ends with an intimate and detailed look at live owls, bringing these creatures of the night into the light! Best for school-age children. No registration required.
A scrap of British territory marooned in the tropical mid-Atlantic halfway between Brazil and Africa, Ascension is a place of enduring oddity.
Officially, nobody is from there. The UK government denies the right of abode, turning Ascension’s 800 or so British citizens – some of whom have lived on the island for decades – into temporary visitors. To enter, you must get the written permission of the Queen’s representative, known rather chillingly as the Administrator.
But you can come to a fascinating lecture by Doug Rogers at the Auburn Public Library and take a virtual trip to this inspiring landscape.
