Wednesday Wanders: Wetlands edition!

All winter long, Maine Master Naturalists Leigh Macmillen Hayes and Dawn Wood have led our popular Wednesday Wanders. We're excited to announce these explorations will be continuing this spring! The winter focus was mammal tracking and the spring focus will be vernal pool and wetland explorations.

Have you ever seen a Fairy Shrimp? Or watched a dragonfly emerge? Are you curious about aquatic creatures and their adaptations? Do you love to learn? Can you tolerate a few hours of slo-mo as biting insects sing sweet nothings in your ears? If you have answered yes to ALL of these questions, then you should join us for wetland treks this spring. Come once or become a regular!


When: Every Other Wednesday until at least June
10:00 am - 12:00 pm

Where: Locations will be announced each week, as the conditions will determine where we go. All locations will be in the Lake Region.

What to Bring: Muckboots or sneakers that might get wet, mosquito netting or a hat, bug repellant, but not on hands or footwear, water, a snack, and a sense of wonder.

Other things to know: We won't move quickly and we probably won't move far as we try to identify the critters who call these wetlands home for at least part of the year. Please leave pets at home.
