Winter
MPBN: Quest Series, Moving Image, 0:56:43

For those plants and animals that don't migrate south for winter, a lot of preparation goes into getting ready for winter. When it comes to dealing with winter, plants and animals know things we humans don't.

Bioinvasion
MPBN: Quest Series, Moving Image, 00:58:03

As human activity silently globalizes our world, our modern day ecology is under onslaught from spreading alien organisms. These plants and animals are capable of moving aggressively into a habitat and monopolizing resources to the detriment of other species. Can scientists help us win the war against this bio-invasion?

The story of transportation in Maine is the story of the state's ongoing challenge to keep its people connected both to economic markets and to each other. Whether it's Route 113 in western Maine, US Route 1 meandering up the coast, or the once plentiful rail routes that joined every corner of the state, Maine's communities have been formed by the patterns of transportation.

Ice Blocks Cut from Lake
Maine Folklife Center, Still Image

Photograph of a team of horses hauling a sled loaded with ice blocks cut from a lake. Men in background still cutting. Before the technological advances that allowed ice to be produced artifically, the business of cutting ice from Maine's frozen rivers, lakes, and ponds was an important industry in the state. The ice would be stored in specially constructed warehouses, packed with sawdust, and would remain frozen through spring and summer. It was sold to business and individuals for use in iceboxes, which were early refrigerators that kept food cool by use of a big block of ice.

A Part of the Main
MPBN: Home Series, Moving Image, 0:26:01

As Europeans began to look seriously towards Maine as a desirable economic region, there were many debates about who owned or controlled the varied and plentiful natural resources, especially timber. In the mid-1800’s, the timber harvest from the communities in the far north woods traveled via the river communities to the prosperous coast where the wealth of natural resources set sail for the world beyond. Today, these distinct regions remain intact, each with a different story to tell about how history has played itself out since that time.

Spring
MPBN: Quest Series, Moving Image, 00:58:03

Because spring comes so late to northern New England, things have to happen quickly and profusely. Spring is the time of year that wildlife and plants come to life again and get right to the business of creating new life.
