Wilson's Warbler Workshop Join Steve Valleau this Saturday, June 17, for a daylong workshop to carve and paint a Wilson's Warbler ornament. All materials, including knives, will be provided and you will leave with a beautiful basswood bird. Email or call us, 207-244-7555, to enroll. This experience would make a great Father's Day gift! 
Nina Gormley is "Free as a Bird"Founding director Nina Gormley has flown the coop to embark on retirement adventures. We miss her and celebrate the influence of her work. Capturing all that she has done for the Museum and community is challenging, so we hope you will help. Please send memories, words of thanks, or photographs of Nina to Dianne Clendaniel by email or post and we will compile these reflections on her work into a book for her. 

Additionally, we have launched the Nina Gormley Fund, which will support exhibition programming and continue Nina's legacy of inspired exhibits. Please consider making a gift in Nina's honor.
