Maine is postcard-perfect with its miles of coastline and attendant lighthouses, quaint villages, and inland forests, lakes, and rivers. Pristine natural areas like Acadia National Park, Baxter State Park (home to Mount Katahdin, the state's highest peak and the endpoint of the Appalachian Trail), and the sprawling Allagash Wilderness Waterway in northern Maine provide opportunities to view iconic wildlife like moose, bear, beavers, and porcupines.

Meanwhile, in popular seaside towns like Portland, Bar Harbor, Freeport, and Kennebunk, visitors can enjoy whale watching, dining on freshly caught lobster, shopping, and learning about the region's history.

Holbrook partners with Hog Island Audubon Camp on Maine's Mid-Coast to offer select birding and nature programs on Maine's Mid-Coast. Roughly 200 bird species have been recorded in the Hog Island area. Atlantic Puffins are a special highlight, thanks to the camp's connection to the Project Puffin conservation initiative. Other notable species include Black Guillemot, Common Loon, Osprey, Bald Eagle, terns, gulls, ducks, plovers, sandpipers, and passerines like finches, warblers, and vireos.
