Maine Seabird Islands

GuillemotStephanie Martin is the programs coordinator for the non-profit Friends of Maine Seabird Islands. Learn how volunteers work with the Maine Coastal Islands National Wildlife Refuge in its efforts to conserve, protect, and enhance a rich diversity of coastal habitats, seabirds, and other wildlife. Think puffins, terns, razorbills, guillemots, and other seabirds! Since the refuge lands are largely offshore islands that are closed to the public during nesting season, this is a great opportunity to find out what they’re like.

We meet in Mather Auditorium, Wells Reserve at Laudholm.

About Harlequin

Harlequin is a pseudonym for content not attributed to a specific author. It echoes the name of the YCAS newsletter, The Harlequin. Watch for Harlequin Ducks along the rocky portions of the York County coast in winter. ¶ The avatar is by Louis Agassiz Fuertes, who sketched and painted the species during the Harriman Alaska Expedition. ¶ "When we got before the glacier, I saw my first pair of harlequins... the glass showed them plainly to be a ♂ + ♀ histrionicus." — L.A. Fuertes, June 7, 1899
