Join a fun and fascinating 13.8-billion-year exploration of nature, science and the astonishing diversity of life on our planet
This website is the heart and hub of The Naturalist's Notebook—the center of a wheel with many fun and fascinating spokes. Some of the spokes are physical spaces, two of which are open to the public about three months each year. The minute you enter one of them, you are part of the 13.8-billion-year interactive experience. We hope you'll visit us in Maine and check out these constantly evolving spaces, but we will also bring them to life for you here on the website so you can have a virtual (and interactive!) visit no matter where you are. Click below for a glimpse inside three of our physical spaces.
