Thomaston — Georges River Land Trust and the Highlands Coffee House will co-host an It’s a Wild Life winter film series featuring films that celebrate the wild and wonderful ways we live our life on the land and water here in Maine. Films will be screened at 7 p.m. on the second Friday of each month all winter at the Highlands Coffee House on Main Street/Route 1. The public is welcome and admission is free.

The first film to be screened will be “Life by Lobster,” directed by Iain McCray Martin, on Dec. 14. Set against the stunning backdrop of coastal Maine, “Life by Lobster” takes viewers inside the lives of five young lobstermen who have put everything on the line to pursue the Downeast dream of owning a business, raising a family and staying true to a proud way of life.

This event is part of Georges River Land Trust’s annual Walks & Talks series, an effort to introduce the community to the wonderful resources available to them in the St. George River watershed. Upcoming films will be “Hardwater” on Jan. 11; “In the Blood” on Feb. 8; and “Turning Tail” on March 8.

Organized in 1987, the Georges River Land Trust works to conserve the ecosystems and traditional heritage of the Georges River watershed region through permanent land protection, stewardship, education and outdoor experiences. The watershed extends from Montville in the north to Port Clyde and Cushing in the south and includes streams, ponds, lakes, wetlands, farms, hills, mountains, blueberry barrens and forest, as well as a rich tidal estuary of salt marsh, clam flats and productive fishing grounds.
