Have a pair of binoculars collecting dust at home? Birding is a great way to put them to use and learn about the many birds in Maine. The Audubon Society offers oodles of resources, and has a free app you can download to help id birds.
Ready for a treasure hunt? Geocaching is a global outdoor hunt that uses GPS coordinates to help you locate hidden geocaches. Create a free account and download the app or use a GPS device to play. There are 795 geocaches around Bangor, let alone the rest of Maine!
Check out and/or get involved with one of the many citizen science projects happening in Maine. From identifying endangered bumblebees to helping the Maine Bird Atlas (no birding experience necessary!), these projects are a fabulous way to get outside and learn about Maine wildlife.
