Explore the history, geology, and ecology of the Desert of Maine as you check out the dunes at this unique destination. Learn about the human influence on the land, starting with a participatory re-enactment at the 1800's Farmhouse Museum. Meet members of the Tuttle family, whose unsustainable farming practices accidentally uncovered a "desert" around the time of the Civil War. Explore the fossil dig exhibit, take a nature walk, and more!

Girls must have a family adult or troop leader to supervise them during the event. Troop Leaders: if you are registering your troop, please follow troop ratios.
