Rockland — The Maine Coastal Islands National Wildlife Refuge invites children and youth to participate in the National Junior Duck Stamp Contest. On Saturday, Feb. 1, from 1 to 3 p.m., children in grades K-12 can learn about ducks, drawing techniques and rules for entering the contest at the Visitor Center.

There is no fee to participate. Entries from the Midcoast area will be showcased at the Visitor Center later in the spring with a special public open house. For more information, contact the Friends of Maine’s Seabird Islands at 594-0600, ext. 5; or email fomsi@maineseabirds.org.
