Garden History Lecture Series
Heirloom Gardening is for the Birds! (Bees and Butterflies, too!)
Diana Chapin of The Heirloom Garden of Maine will present a collection of slides that highlight some of the most colorful and fragrant plants that attract birds, butterflies and bees to the garden. She’ll discuss the lifecycle of a butterfly and how a gardener may select specific plants that offer shelter, foliage and nectar for the insects in various stages of their lifecycle. At PMM’s Stephen Phillips Memorial Library, 11 Church Street, Searsport. Tickets in advance $8 members, $10 non-members, or at the door $12 members, $15 non-members. Call 207-548-2529 for more information.
When & Where
Penobscot Marine Museum
Penobscot Marine Museum has the feel of a 19th Maine village. Our lovely campus of ten buildings is in the charming town of Searsport on Penobscot Bay. Our ship captain’s house is beautifully furnished with antiques from around the world. Another ship captain’s house displays our extensive collection of 19th century marine paintings, scrimshaw, ship models, and China Trade objects. We have three 19th century barns displaying over fifty classic small water craft including lobster boats, dories, and canoes. Two buildings are filled with hands-on maritime activities for kids. Outside on our green you can raise and lower a ship’s mast!
Check our website www.penobscotmarinemuseum.org for exhibit, lectures and workshops through the year. The PMM campus is open from late May through late October, but our Gallery has special exhibits, lectures and workshops throughout the winter and spring, and our Museum Store and Framer remain open Thursday through Saturday.
