Join us for SIPS AND SEABIRDS!
The Seabird Institute is proud to partner with local breweries, cideries, and wineries throughout the state to share the magic of seabirds with communities across Maine.
The Seabird Institute, formerly known as Project Puffin, is responsible for bringing Atlantic Puffins and other seabirds back to the Gulf of Maine since the 1970’s.
At our Paint-N-Sip style events, you’ll learn how and why certain seabird restoration techniques and scientific methods were developed, and how these techniques continue to help seabirds around the world, while you paint your very own Least Tern decoy to take home!
