The Mystery of Maine’s Wildlife, with Ed Robinson

Tuesday, November 22 -- 6:30 pm - 7:30 pm

Maine Wildlife Series

At this month’s Maine Wildlife Series, writer and photographer Ed Robinson will be highlighting some of Maine’s more secretive species. Though we rarely see these creatures, there is much to learn about them and their lifestyles. This program will focus on Atlantic puffins, black bears, northern saw-whet owls, Canada lynx, and the American mink, as well as a couple of other  surprises. This month’s guest speaker Ed Robinson spends a great deal of time studying the outside world and will share insights about these fascinating animals. His presentation will entertain and educate with stunning photos, biological facts and stories, with a Q&A session to follow.

This program will take place in person at the library and will be streamed simultaneously on Zoom, for those wishing to attend virtually.
