🐟Today we spent some time checking in with our research team and their important larval fish ID project! They’re keeping an eye on how climate change may be causing shifts in spawning activities in the Gulf of Maine. 🐠 #marinebiology #coastalmaine #science #exploremaine

Wind dropped a branch across a popular trail, but our grounds crew made quick work of it. Head of Muskie Trail is okay to use, but a familiar view is changed for good. #foliage #fallentree #trails #windstorm
