Explore Mount Desert Island and its birds through numerous events and venues. Greet our warblers on early morning birding walks, visit with puffins and pelagic birds at sea, and observe Peregrine Falcons at an active breeding site in Acadia National Park. A combination of lectures, walks, and adventures will connect you to Downeast Maine’s many bird species, diverse habitats and local birding experts.

From the deck of a whale watch catamaran you can enjoy the sights and sounds of Atlantic Puffins, Razorbills, Roseate and Arctic Terns on Petit Manan Island then spot whales and pelagic birds 25 to 30 miles offshore. Explore bays and marine estuaries by kayak and canoe.
