What We Do

Sailing Maine 2016

What a better way to explore the world than by one of the cleanest renewable energy sources we have: wind! Join the Urban Ecology Center for 4 nights aboard the Lewis R. French, a two-masted schooner built in 1871 that is the oldest schooner in the United States! We'll island-hop through Penobscot Bay looking for seals, dolphins, puffins and whales. Participants can help sail the boat, jump in the ocean and partake in a beach side lobster bake.
