Our speaker is Dr. Arthur Spiess, Senior Archaeologist for the Maine Historic Preservation Commission. Hear from Dr. Spiess about how Native Americans have lived along the Maine coast for thousands of years, as well as the effects of coastal erosion on archaeological sites and what local land trusts can do to help.

Please join us for a social hour with refreshments from 6-7 p.m., followed by a report on Harpswell Heritage Land Trust activities over the past year and a brief business meeting. Dr. Spiess will speak after the business meeting.
