Guided Winter Hike with KELT: Tracking Winter Estuary Animals

DeWick Farm 208 Phipps Point Road, Woolwich, ME

Even in the dead of winter, the natural world is brimming with activity! All one needs to do is look for the signs animals leave behind. Join Kennebec Estuary Land Trust (KELT) and Maine Maritime Museum to discover how to read animal tracks at DeWick Farm in Woolwich on Saturday, January 25 at 10 am. Led by Maine Master Naturalists, participants will learn to interpret clues to tell the story of local wildlife in winter in the Kennebec Estuary. Maine has very few animals that are true hibernators, or animals that spend winter in a dormant state. Many of the creatures thought to be hidden away for the coldest parts of the year are still active to find food, water, and even mates. Naturalists will share the process of tracking and identifying these furry friends by observing their prints. Participants will learn to measure and interpret an animal's print and tracks. DeWick Farm is a KELT easement that was generously donated by the DeWick Family in 2013. A mixture of woodland, open fields, and shoreline on Montsweag Bay, it will serve as an excellent backdrop to explore the lives of Maine mammals in winter. Program material is geared for budding naturalists and is family friendly. Because winter weather can be unpredictable, this event will only be postponed in the case of severe weather. Driving directions to the easement will follow registration. The Kennebec Estuary Land Trust is a membership supported organization dedicated to protecting the land, water and wildlife of the Kennebec Estuary. It maintains ten preserves for public enjoyment and has protected 3,700+ acres of land since founding in 1989. FMI visit http://www.kennebecestuary.org or call (207) 442-8400.

Unfurl: A Virtual Symposium for Undertold Maritime Voices

Maritime history and culture is rich and complex; preserved and interpreted by many prominent collecting and cultural institutions across the globe. And yet, the stories of Black mariners, the changing environment, and the indigenous peoples on whose land these institutions occupy are simultaneously rich and underrepresented. These vital stories better contextualize the present day and provide avenues for additional scholarship and research into our shared maritime heritage. As one step toward telling more inclusive stories, Maine Maritime Museum has organized an online symposium as a platform for scholars to share their work on these important topics. Invited speakers investigate and give voice to these undertold maritime stories that advance our socio-political, environmental, and economic understanding of the maritime world, past and present. Presentations include: New England Native Mariners of the 18th and 19th Century: Life on the Docks Chris Newell, Director of Education, Akomawt Educational Initiative, Former Director of the Abbe Museum Coastal Foodways and African American Maritime Heritage Kim Long, Scholar in Residence for Digital and Cultural Engagement, Gibbes Museum of Art, Charleston, SC and Executive Director of The Lowcountry Rice Culture Project John Brown Russwurm (1799-1851): A Black Atlantic Leader Forged in Maine C.
