Emergency Weather Conditions
Occasionally, severe weather or other circumstances will alter our usual program schedule. If Maine Audubon’s buildings are closed unexpectedly, all programs are cancelled during the closed period. Please note that we may close for only a portion of the day. If our buildings are open, unusually severe weather conditions can still force the cancellation of a program for that day.
If Maine Audubon is closed due to weather or other unanticipated circumstances, a message will be left on our automated voicemail system. Please call the appropriate center to find out the status of the program:
