Events at Visitor Center

Maine Coastal Islands NWR Visitor Center

One of the ways FOMCI supports the wildlife refuge is by providing programming, exhibits and art to the Visitor Center in Rockland with grants and your donations. The center is open Monday through Friday, 8:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. except for holidays. The center also is open on the First Friday Art Walks in Rockland from 5:00-8:00 p.m. and on select evenings and Saturdays for events.  During July and August, the center is open on Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.  Come explore the center at 9 Water Street in Rockland, Maine. For more information, call 594-0600, ext. 5.
