Wings, Waves & Woods Festival
This past weekend saw the return of Island Heritage Trust’s annual Wings, Waves & Woods Festival, a celebration of birds and birding, with more than 20 events offered at locations throughout Stonington and Deer Isle May 20-22. After taking a two-year hiatus due to COVID-19, the nonprofit organization once again invited the public to learn from area birders, horticulturists, herbalists, sea captains and other subject matter experts through walks, talks, boat rides, meals and more.
