Sharing ‘Best Seashore Nature Sites’

Aug 04, 2017

Lincolnville Center — Tony Oppersdorff and Kyrill Schabert will present a free illustrated talk based on their book “Best Seashore Nature Sites: Midcoast Maine” Wednesday, Aug. 16, at 7 p.m. at the Lincolnville Community Library, 208 Main St./routes 173/52.

The nature guide, also authored by Des FitzGerald, offers detailed information on 32 public preserves from Freeport to Searsport, with inland sites in Jefferson, Dresden and Searsmont. It includes maps, descriptions of each site’s distinctive features and hundreds of beautiful color photos. It also features articles by the authors and other experts on the wide variety of flora and fauna to be found along the Midcoast’s natural boundary between sea and land.

In addition to showing photos from the book and sharing information on the preserves during their program, the authors will explain the best ways to access and explore the sites. The two also wrote “Best Nature Sites: Midcoast Maine,” a guide to natural areas along the Route 1 corridor from Brunswick to Belfast.

Schabert has had a love of nature since his earliest years and continues to study the Maine landscape through personal observation in the field. Oppersdorff, who has lived in Lincolnville with his family since 1976, is a longtime naturalist and photographer.
