Loon Magic: What is so enchanting about this black and white bird that likes to sing during the times that most people like to sleep? The sight, sounds, and behavior of the Common Loon are captivating. Come get a closer look into the life of this ancient bird species.

Woodland Wonders: Don't miss out on a chance to get an up-close view of the fascinating animals that roam the Great North Woods. Join me at the table across from the office to learn about the fascinating natural history of the north country wildlife.

Fidgety Fish of Umbagog: The fish in our lake are diverse and often poorly understood animals. Help me to lure in a few fish to get a closer look, and learn about these mysterious creatures that are living in our lake. Don't have a fishing rod?
