Map Highlights Seabird Nesting Islands on the Maine Coast

Friends of Maine Coastal Islands NWR has published, in partnership with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, a large, full-color map of the seabird nesting islands off the coast of Maine.

This decorative and highly detailed map, 15″ by 40″, shows both surface and undersea topography. It also shows main roads, county boundaries and towns.

Maps can be purchased directly from the Friends of Maine Coastal Islands NWR at the visitor center.

Flat maps are $26.38 and laminated maps are $42.20 (tax included) plus $8 shipping and handling. Mounted maps are only available in the store.  Please send a check to P.O. Box 1231, Rockland, ME 04841. All proceeds support FOMCI.
