Chapter Activities in the Age of COVID

Ordinarily we would be inviting you to join us in exploring Maine’s natural history and environmental concerns, with a focus on the abundant wildlife and diverse ecosystems that exist within the Penobscot Valley region. However, due to the COVID-19 crisis, the Penobscot Valley Chapter has declared a temporary moratorium on all in-person presentations and field trips for this fall.

The PVC Board of Directors is currently discussing alternative ways to serve our membership and increase public awareness. In the meantime, we encourage you to explore the greater Bangor region on your own this fall, using the information on this website - including current and previous editions of out newsletter- for inspiration on good spots to check out for birding and general outdoor recreation within the Penobscot Valley region.

Check out the latest postings on the PVC Facebook Page. We have recently added a PVC group page to Facebook, giving members a place to share photos, videos, and stories.

Lastly, be sure to keep current with Maine Audubon's Events calendar for upcoming Zoom presentations and webinars.
