Friends of Sears Island, the Belfast Free Library, and Maine Coast Heritage Trust invite you to a presentation about wildlife activity in this area of the mid-coast in March, to be held on Thursday, March 14, from 6:30-7:30 pm in the Abbott Room at the Belfast Free Library. There will also be a Zoom-in option for this program for those who aren’t able to attend in person.

Around these parts, March is a wonderful month full of transitions (is there a month that isn’t full of transitions?). When it comes to animal activity in mid-coast Maine in March, there’s lots going on, and more to come as we move toward spring. Join Maine Coast Heritage Trust’s Land Steward and Nature Observer, Kirk Gentalen, for a lively and insightful presentation about where things are at (presently) wildlife-wise and what Kirk’s looking forward to crossing paths with soon enough. Through stories and slides, both loaded with tips and laden with information, we’ll get ourselves ready for spring, which will be only days away.

Kirk Gentalen is a regional stewardship manager for the Maine Coast Heritage Trust for mid-coast Maine (mcht.org) and has 30 years of environmental education experience from working all over the country. Currently living on the St George peninsula with his family, Amy and Leif, Gentalen writes a nature column (‘Nature Bummin’) for MCHT (mcht.org/story-tag/nature-bummin) and edits the Vinalhaven Sightings Report (vinalhavensightings.blogspot.com).
