Camp Mummichog Music & Nature’s Concert

A “Young Composers Showcase” concert was held on August 7 in Darrows Barn at Round Top Farm.

The camp concluded with this performance of nine new works of nature-inspired music composed by the children and played by Salt Bay Chamberfest musicians.

Seal Cove Shore Preserve

With the help of exceptional volunteers, videographer Peter McDougall produced a short video about the Seal Cove Shore Preserve trail in South Bristol, highlighting the multiple roles that conserved lands play in the community.

  • Inscription: The Staff and Trustees of the Damariscotta River Association dedicate this video in memory of Robert G. Gardner (1925 – 2014), “intrepid filmmaker,” lover of trails, and friend of the Damariscotta River, who – with his family – played a central role in protecting Seal Cove Shore Preserve.
