Kajak! A Virtual Exhibit 10/20/20 - 12/20/21 at 12:00 am

Kajak! A Virtual Exhibit

Inspired by the full-sized Nunatsiavut kayak given to the College in 1891 and on display in the museum gallery for over 50 years, this exhibit explores making and using traditional kayaks from Greenland, Labrador, and beyond. It features over 20 model kayaks and umiaks, as well as associated equipment, historic film and photographs, and the centerpiece of the exhibit, a full size replica of the 1891 Kajak created for this exhibit.
 
You can explore the full object-based exhibit, as well as various multimedia components, online. Recordings of lectures and other virtual events during the 2020-21 academic year will also be posted here, so be sure to check back.

Trek Across Maine 03/20/21 - 06/30/21 at 12:00 am

Trek Across Maine

The American Lung Association’s 2021 Trek Across Maine has been reimagined into a virtual Cycle Your Way format now through June 30th! Cycling is a great way to improve both your physical and mental health, while giving an extra boost to your immune system. We encourage you to participate in the virtual event as this allows you to get outside while still practicing social distancing!

Money raised will support public health efforts related to lung disease, including COVID-19 research. Over the next three years, the American Lung Association has pledged $25 million to:

  • Provide free lung health education and masks to those in need.
  • Protect public health by advocating for COVID and flu vaccines in underserved communities of color.
  • Prevent future outbreaks by investing in respiratory virus research.

What: If you choose to participate in the cycling portion of the virtual event, complete 60, 120 or 180 miles on an indoor or outdoor bike (or mix of both) at your own pace and in segments if preferred. All virtual participants that raise the minimum $250 by June 30th will receive an accomplishment medal and event t-shirt. You can earn incentives the more you raise!

When: Now through June 30th, 2021.

Where: Anywhere you’d like, just make sure to always practice social distancing. Sample routes throughout Maine, New Hampshire, and Massachusetts will be provided as well.

How: Visit the event website (TrekAcrossMaine.org) and register as a virtual participant for $25. You will receive everything you need to successfully complete the virtual event from there!

Extras: Join our  Trek Across Maine Group on Strava. You can connect your tracking devices to the Strava app so others can see your progress. We also encourage you to join our Trek Across Maine group to stay in touch with other participants and post photos of your ride/screenshots of your progress.

Red Cloak Tours offers a unique historical walking tour of Brunswick every day!

“Secrets of Brunswick” will wind through the historic district, relating little known facts and folklore about some of the buildings and past residents. It’s a fairly easy walk that will last about an hour and is appropriate for all ages.

The tour is private for one family or small group, up to 10 people. Guests are guided by a professional storyteller via conference call on a cell phone. This is a live call, not a recording or zoom platform.

Tours are scheduled on the hour from 8 am to 7 pm and are by reservation only. Tickets are $29.95 for the whole group. Book online at www.redcloaktours.com or call 207-380-3806. Other tours are available in nearby Bath and Freeport as well as 9 other Maine communities.
