Presentations by Author Ed Robinson on the Wonders of Maine’s Wildlife

Harpswell author Ed Robinson has been writing and speaking about the outdoors for years. His new presentation features superb photographs of many of Maine’s wild creatures, both the iconic and the secretive. Ed will share fascinating stories about these creatures and help us to understand more about their lives.

Growing up in the Finger Lakes region of New York, Ed developed a love of the natural world. This love was nourished during years of travel around the world. Heading toward retirement from his career in the biotechnology industry, Ed and his wife moved from England to beautiful Harpswell in 2007. They were thrilled to discover the amazing diversity of wild creatures living in a variety of habitats.

Ed has written extensively about Maine’s wildlife and recently published a book titled Nature Notes from Maine: River Otters, Moose, Skunks and More. The book is a collection of 40 stories about wildlife including lobsters, loons, fishers and ospreys.  It includes 60 stunning photographs and 10 ink drawings in 190 pages.

Ed is available for a engaging, free wildlife presentation for your club, library or community hall. Contact him at erobin77@gmail.com for more information.  Click here for a presentation flyer.
