Hirundo Wildlife Refuge offers a wide array of programs and events for all ages to enjoy!   Below is the list of the upcoming events and programs.  All attendees are asked to complete a waiver before participating.  You can download a waiver here.  

Hirundo's COVID-19 Response: In accordance with the Maine CDC and Governor's Office, events of more than 10 persons will be postponed until further notice. This includes Walk with the Stars (originally scheduled March 22) and An Evening with Bernd Heinrich (originally scheduled March 26). BOTH OF THESE EVENTS WILL BE RESCHEDULED TBD. We do not have information yet on when, but will update as soon as we do.

Otherwise, HIRUNDO REMAINS OPEN. Please follow all national and state regulations for enjoying nature safely and responsibly. Parking is available at Gate 1, and visitors are welcome to walk in dawn to dusk. Nature is a rare resource in a time of social withdrawal, and Hirundo is here to provide that much-needed balm. We'll be posting activities for families and individuals as Mother Nature carries on into spring and some of our favorite friends begin to return to the Refuge. Stay tuned and stay healthy friends!
