Maine Memory Network is collecting Maine stories.

Add your story to the Maine Memory Network


Perhaps you’ve been doing some personal reflection during this time of isolation and maybe you’ve got a good story to tell? The Maine Memory Network is collecting stories from Mainers about their experiences, families, ancestors, cities and towns, work life, historical events and anything else worth documenting. You can submit written text and include up to three photos, along with a video or audio clip. The submission process is easy, and it’s a wonderful place for stories to live and be shared.

Watch Maine Audubon’s live cams


National Audubon Society’s Project Puffin invites you to flap your online wings and head to its website where you’ll find several live cameras in Maine that are trained on puffin nests and habitats. You never quite know what you’ll see, and that’s half the fun. There’s also a seal cam where you might see seal pups, bald eagles and winter birds, depending on when you log on.
