Downeast Chapter

Serving All of Hancock County

The Downeast Chapter has been a chapter of Maine Audubon since 1971. We are a nonprofit membership organization including all of Maine Audubon's members within Hancock County. Home to Acadia National Park, forests, wetlands, blueberry barrens, and miles of rocky ocean and island habitat, Hancock County supports diverse species of birds and wildlife, and offers excellent opportunities for enjoying nature, birding, outdoor recreation, and wildlife observation and study.
