Gilsland Farm Audubon Center Professional Review and Guide

"Five minutes from downtown Portland, this year-round sanctuary offers a variety of habitats, gentle trails, and an indoor nature center. Year-round exploration is easy at Gilsland Farm, home to Maine Audubon’s headquarters, located just a few minutes from downtown Portland. Upon arrival, it’s hard to choose where to start: both the modern Audubon Center and the trails beckon, and both are worth a visit. Begin your journey at the center, open seven days a week, to learn more about the property, its history and trails, and the nature-related exhibits on display.

Kids will likely beeline for the Children’s Discovery Room, where they can observe live turtles, play with eco-themed puzzles and games, and try their eyes at bird-watching through kid-friendly binoculars out the huge windows facing multiple bird-feeding stations. Adjacent to this room are the reading library and conference room, which contain a large collection of mounted specimens of Maine birds and mammals, including several extinct species. If children venture into this area, make sure an adult is supervising."
