A new exhibit opens on June 30. The Moosehead Lake Region’s brilliant night skies just became famous. Come see why!
This exhibit is made in collaboration with the Appalachian Mountain Club, whose land along the 100-Mile Wilderness was recently designated as an International Dark Sky Park, the first one east of the Mississippi River.

Last Leg of Thoreau’s Trip with Penobscot Guides

Last Leg follows the last section of Thoreau’s 1857 canoe trip on the Penobscot River, made famous in his book The Maine Woods. Like Thoreau, paddlers will learn under the wing of Penobscot guides about Wabanaki heritage and Penobscot connection to the landscape.
Saturday and Sunday are spent immersed in cultural activities on the Penobscot’s Sugar Island. Days include making your own basket, paddling a birch bark canoe, nature & plant exploratory walks, flint knapping, or wood carving; evenings in a talking circle around the campfire, with drumming & singing demonstrations. Monday after breakfast, paddlers move downstream from Sugar Island to Indian Island, load out, have lunch together & visit the Penobscot Nation Museum before saying goodbyes. Registration is limited, advanced sign-up required. Cost is $325/person; includes all but personal gear. To register, contact the Moosehead Historical Society, 207-695-2909 . mooseheadhistory@myfairpoint.net.

The Thoreau Wabanaki Festival is made in partnership by
