From Belfast to Jackman, from Auburn to Casco, throughout this beautiful summer, Chewonki’s been teaching natural history to audiences of every age all over Maine. And where our Traveling Natural History Programs educators go, there’s often an enthusiastic reporter. A July issue of the Maine Library Association newsletter included this write-up of a presentation we made at the Albert Church Brown Memorial Library in China, Maine:
“A Chewonki natural history program on Saturday, July 16, brought more than 100 people, including many children, to the library’s south lawn to watch instructor Sarah Daniels and her companions, Olivia the Great Horned Owl, Varia the Barred Owl and Athena the Saw-Whet Owl. Afterwards, people wandered into the library to look for books about owls and to talk about what they’d learned–one family, for example, now knows which owl they hear in the daytime as well as at night when they’re camping in the White Mountains.”
Later in July, a reporter from the Times Record in Brunswick wrote about our Bugmobile presentation at the Curtis Memorial Library.
Chewonki’s traveling staff and animals have had an adventuresome summer.
