Wings, Waves & Woods

May 20 - May 22


We are welcoming ALL birders: families and beginners!

The Wings, Waves, & Woods festival comprises a mix of birding, nature, historical walks, and activities. The popular boat trip to Seal Island offers sightings of Atlantic Puffins, Razorbills, Northern Gannets, and others. Up to two dozen species of warblers can be seen on the various guided walks on Island Heritage Trust’s preserves, as well as shorebirds nesting and breeding along our extensive shoreline. Experience just one activity or make it an entire weekend. Connected by a bridge to the mainland, Deer Isle is off the beaten path but offers lodging options from camping to luxurious-cabin getaways. Get a taste of life “the way it should be” by taking in the spectacular scenery and working waterfront around the Island.
