Field Journal: Maine Natural History Observer

The Maine Natural History Observer is the online natural history journal of Maine Natural History Observatory.  It provides insights and observations about the natural world, information on the latest research, projects to participate in, a look at natural history observations in the state 75-100 years ago, and interesting facts about Maine natural history.

The observations made by amateur and avocational naturalists in their own backyards and during their travels through the state are a huge resource for furthering natural science in Maine.  The Observer aims to serve as a platform for naturalists of all experience levels to connect, share, and expand upon their collective knowledge about Maine biota. 

Subscriptions to the Observer are only available to current MNHO members. Become a MNHO member (for as little as $10) to get a one-year subscription to the Observer.
