Big Night Celebration at CMTM
March 8 – March 11, 2024

Celebrate Big Night with CMTM! Every spring in the land we now call Maine, hundreds of thousands of amphibians awaken to leave their underground homes in the pouring rain to make the journey to vernal pools, known as Big Night. Visit CMTM for a special weekend of programming focused on our local ecosystem. Each day highlights a variety of educational, hands-on activities in addition to exploring the exhibits. Activities include a visit on Friday, March 8, at 10:15 am with scientist Greg LeClair, amphibian expert and the founder of a citizen science project called The Maine Big Night, and a special ticketed event on Saturday, March 9, at 2:30 pm and 3:15 pm with the “Meet a Frog” with the Center for Wildlife.
CMTM members are invited to join us for a Members Monday Big Night Celebration on Monday, March 11 from 10am to 1pm.
