Nature as My Muse, with Center for Wildlife (Rescheduled from 2/28)

Tuesday, March 7 -- 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm

Maine Wildlife SeriesThroughout history, humans have been inspired by nature. This month’s Maine Wildlife program offers the opportunity to use the Center for Wildlife’s live animal ambassadors as the inspiration for your own creative expression. We’ll explore concepts of camouflage and biomimicry and the history of how humans have been inspired by nature. We’ll take a look at how to start nature journaling and you’ll have the opportunity to start the drawing process right away! Join us as we welcome educators from the Center for Wildlife in Cape Neddick and their fascinating and lovable animal ambassadors who will help us explore the vast variety of wildlife in our state.

The second half of this program will offer attendees the chance to practice nature journaling using live ambassador animals as subject and inspiration. Please bring a notebook and any writing/drawing implements that you’d like!

This program will take place in person at the library and will be streamed simultaneously on Zoom, for those wishing to attend virtually. If you plan on attending, please register for this program below so that we can send you a reminder on the day of the event, as well as an optional Zoom link to join us. All are welcome!

About the Center for Wildlife
The Center for Wildlife is nestled at the base of Mount Agamenticus, in Cape Neddick, Maine, where for 33 years their facility has treated over 50,000 injured and orphaned wild animals and presented programming to thousands of community members annually.  
Center for Wildlife proudly serves the New England region, typically managing 2,000 patients each year (native wildlife injured because of vehicle collisions, domestic pets, pollution, fishing lines, oil spills, and other human-related causes), representing more than 190 species of birds, reptiles, and mammals. The clinic is run out of a modest 1,200 square foot building and a campus of over 45 outdoor enclosures, all of which can be filled with patients during the peak season of April – October. The goal of their wildlife clinic is to medically treat and provide rehabilitation to injured wild animals so that they can be released back to the wild where they belong.
