Seen Anything Good? A Continuing Story
with Don Reimer
Author, birder, and photographer Don Reimer will share photos and discuss his new book Seen Anything Good? Spanning six decades of personal memories and observations across Maine, the book features a broad array of bird-related topics, from basic identification skills, to bird ecology, behavior, migration, and conservation issues.
Following the presentation, Don will take questions about his book and all matters of birds in general.
The Life and Works of David Moses Bridges
with Donald Soctomah & Jean Flahive
“I’ve known the canoe since it was still on the tree.”
David Moses Bridges, who sought to revive and reinvent traditional Passamaquoddy arts, was the tribe’s most celebrated birch bark canoe maker. As a means to help preserve David’s legacy, Jean Flahive and Donald Soctomah co-authored The Canoe Maker, and will share their magical tale of David and his young son practicing the ancient art and spirituality of building a traditional canoe.
Owen Marshall has performed and recorded with many of traditional music’s top acts. In addition to being a respected performer, Owen is in demand at music camps throughout New England and the U.S., where he shares his approach to accompanying traditional music. Alden Robinson has played the fiddle most of his life. He plays mostly Irish tunes and traditional New England dance music.
