Apr 29, 2014
The Maine Coastal Islands National Wildlife Refuge Visitor Center is just south of downtown Rockland.

Rockland — The Maine Coastal Islands National Wildlife Refuge Visitor Center will host an open house and film debut Saturday, May 10, from 5 to 8 p.m. The Quasimodal Chorus! will be featured singing short sets of its favorite environmental songs during the evening.

The center’s new orientation film about the work of the refuge will be shown for the first time this evening. There will be an art activity suitable for all ages and information about the refuge's work available, and the art gallery with its new exhibits will be open.

For those who have not discovered this Visitor Center yet, the open house is an opportunity to get a snapshot of what it offers. New exhibits are being developed to tell the conservation story of our Maine islands. The open house is being hosted by the Refuge, assisted by the Friends of Maine’s Seabird Islands.

The Maine Coastal Islands National Wildlife Refuge Visitor Center is at 9 Water St., housed in the old Captain Snow house, the large white building just behind Triangle Park where Water Street and Route 73/Main Street meet. For more information, call 594-0600, ext. 5.
