On Sunday, July 10 from 4 to 7 p.m., the Friends of Maine Seabird Islands, a local non-profit organization, is offering residents and tourists a special boat tour to see puffins, terns and other seabirds at the height of their nesting season.

Leaving from Port Clyde on the M/V Elizabeth Ann, participants will be able to enjoy complimentary snacks and beverages on their way to Eastern Egg Rock.

U.S. Fish and Wildlife and National Audubon biologists will narrate the trip and give the passengers the “inside story” about seabird restoration and on-going research projects.

Tickets for this annual fundraising event may be purchased for $35 at the Owl and Turtle Bookstore in Camden, Sweet Sensations Café in Rockport, Project Puffin in Rockland, or by calling Stephanie Martin at 236-3010.
