Rooftop Gulls with Noah Perlut

Thursday, 4/5
6:30-7:30 PM
This talk is part of our MAINE WILDLIFE SERIES

Several years ago, Noah Perlut, Associate Professor of Biology at the University of New England, noticed that Herring Gulls were nesting on building ledges and roofs in downtown Portland, rather than on islands–their traditional nesting-grounds. 

What are the benefits for gulls in using this human-created habitat?

Noah and his students are monitoring a number of roof-top gull colonies in Portland. In this talk, he’ll share insights from this fascinating research. 

Democracy Café – April 2018

Tuesday, April 10th
6:30 pm – 8:00 pm
Originally scheduled on 3/13; moved re: snowstorm #3!

The Democracy Café rolls into April with a look at the government that affects us in the most personal way – that of the town of Cape Elizabeth.

Our guest co-facilitator is Town Manager Matt Sturgis. Matt will talk to us about how our local government functions with a Town Manager, Town Council, and Town Committees. And we’ll talk about how Cape government is affected by state and national government rules and regulations.

This will be a terrific opportunity to get to know Matt a little better, to understand how our town functions, to ask questions, and perhaps to brainstorm ways we can help make our town and the world a better place.

We hope you’ll join us to share, learn, and connect!

Morning Book Group – April

Wednesday, April 11
9:15 – 10:30 AM
Our morning book group meets at a new time: On the second Wednesday of the month.
We hope you’ll join us in April for our storm-postponed discussion of Orphan Train by Christina Baker Kline. 

“Penobscot Indian Molly Ayer is close to ‘aging out’ of the foster care system. A community service position helping an elderly woman clean out her home is the only thing keeping Molly out of juvie and worse…. As she helps Vivian sort through her possessions and memories, Molly learns that she and Vivian aren’t as different as they seem to be.”

All are welcome!
