Something(s) to look forward to

It's a while until spring courses begin the week of March 22. But never fear: two dynamic presentations are on the horizon!

  • First comes an exploration of that gem in Bradley, the Maine Forest and Logging Museum (sometimes known as Leonard's Mills). There's lots of fascinating stuff, including the working water-powered sawmill, the famous Lombard log hauler, and more. Herb Crosby, our presenter, has been involved with the project from the beginning. He taught Mechanical Engineering Technology at UMaine.
  • Then comes "Native American Studies 101," which will include a discussion of Native demographics and regional similarities/differences, with a focus on the local tribes. It will also cover perceptions of Native people in media and popular culture. Presenter Lisa Neuman teaches anthropology and Native American Studies at UMaine.
