Our annual celebration will include delicious refreshments, time to connect with neighbors and friends, a report on Harpswell Heritage Land Trust’s activities in the past year, a short business meeting of the membership, and an engaging presentation by author and naturalist Ed Robinson. It is free and open to all.

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 has published two books. His most recent book is titled Nature Notes from Maine: Puffins, Black Bears, Raccoons & More. In 2018 he published the first volume of his Nature Notes series titled Nature Notes from Maine: River Otters, Moose, Skunks and More. The books each contain 40 stories about Maine wildlife, accompanied by stunning photographs. All proceeds from the sales of the Nature Notes books support the conservation and education work of Harpswell Heritage Land Trust. Click here for more information or to order your copies.
