Portside's Autumn Equinox at the Audubon event returned on Sep. 22, 2022, to the Maine Audubon. Over 200 attendees gathered safely outside at the Maine Audubon in Falmouth for a night of food trucks, local craft beers, and live music! What was almost rained out, turned out to be a beautiful night once the rain cleared!
Attendees enjoyed delicious food from Tacos Del Seoul, Cheese Louise PB&ME. The Marshmallow Cart, and a spread from Cumberland Baking. Local craft beers were donated by Rising Tide Brewing, Bunker Brewing, Allagash Brewing, and Banded Brewing. Local wine was provided by Cellardoor Winery.
Portside is pleased to announce that this year's Autumn Equinox at Maine Audubon despite the weather raised over $15,000+ raised for the Maine Audubon!
These funds will be used to support the Maine Audubon operations and programs, including increased efforts to reach a broad, diverse, and traditionally underserved population through environmental education efforts and activities. The Audubon plans to expand their diversity efforts through Education to inspire the next generation of environmental advocates, prioritize equity and inclusion in programming decisions and allocations, provide resources to increase environmental literacy, and embrace and expand its role as Maine's bird and birding lead through more accessible programming.
