    Chewonki Zoom Visit: Owls of Maine

    Rockland Public Library ONLINE

    Three live owls are the highlights of this program, which introduces participants to the owls native to Maine and New England. Beginning with slides and sounds, participants will learn the identifying characteristics and calls of each owl. Then, using talons, wings, and skulls, we explore the adaptations of these silent nocturnal hunters. This program ends with an intimate and detailed look at live owls, bringing these creatures of the night into the light!

    For more about Chewonki, visit https://chewonki.org/at-home/

    Space is limited, so email Miss Katie at kdrago@rocklandmaine.gov to reserve your seat & let her know how many children will be attending.

    02:00 PM

    Chewonki Zoom Visit: Scales & Tales

    Rockland Public Library ONLINE

    Using live, non-releasable reptiles, this program will compare these species and discuss their adaptations. Many people conjure up images of slimy skin and bloodthirsty monsters when they hear the word “reptile.” This engaging program works to dispel some of those fears by allowing students to observe snakeskins, turtle shells, skeletons, and other unique reptilian artifacts.

    For more about Chewonki, visit https://chewonki.org/at-home/

    Space is limited, so email Miss Katie at kdrago@rocklandmaine.gov to reserve your seat and let her know how many children will be attending.

    Virtual Presentation: Marine Mammals of Maine presents A Seal’s Journey

    Rockland Public Library ONLINE

    Rockland Public Library will host Marine Mammals of Maine (MMoME) on Thursday, August 6th at 6:30pm, for a Virtual Talk entitled “A Seal’s Journey.” Jessica Woodend from MMoME will take the audience through a seal’s journey, from stranding to release, covering many of the obstacles in between. The talk will start by addressing some common questions, such as whether it’s normal for seals to be out of the water, and why you might see a baby seal on its own. Woodend will then dive into the details of when and why seals need our help. You will also learn what MMoME is, what they do, the animals they care for, and how you might help.

    Jessica Woodend has been a Wildlife Educator throughout the country for the past 13 years, with the last 8 years spent here in Maine. She has been a volunteer with Marine Mammals of Maine for 4 years, and helps with education, animal care, and animal rescue/response.

    To request the link to attend via Zoom, please email sbillings@rocklandmaine.gov by 4pm on the day of the event.

    Virtual Talk: “What does it mean to be ‘OK’? ~ with Kathrin Gabriel Jones

    Rockland Public Library ONLINE

    No two ways around it, we’re all experiencing a difficult and unsettling time: A pandemic, Social unrest, Economic uncertainty. We’re all figuring things out as we go, and every day there’s something new we need to fold into our lives and remember. There’s so much going on, it just might be easier to answer, how are you, with “I’m okay” and Just Keep Going. But sometimes, it matters that we acknowledge when we’re not okay. Because that happens. It’s supposed to: We can’t be All Things to All People at All Times. And in order to us to acknowledge that, we need to tell the difference between “I’m okay” and “I’m not okay.”

    So … what does “Okay” mean to you? Let’s find out.

    Gabriel-Jones has thirty years of experience in education, ranging from physicians to preschool, teaching subjects that extend from medical compliance to playing well with others.

    To request the link to attend via Zoom, please email sbillings@rocklandmaine.gov by 4pm on the day of the event.
