I love puffins and any tiny fuzzy sea animal. Project puffin had a baby puffin cam (squee), a sleepy, friendly dog, and offered many educational experiences. Definitely a must-stop in downtown Rockland.

A complete exhibit on Puffins. A burrow that you can go in to see how they nest, maps of their territory and lots of information. Did you know that Puffins spend the winter at sea? They only come ashore to nest and raise their young

Learn all about the wonderful puffins. What are they, were they live, how they raise their babies, etc. The puffins are making a great comeback thanks to the help they are getting. Learn about it. Only takes about 1/2 hour.
