As always, at the Schoolhouse at 7:30 pm. Monhegan Associates and children free, others $5.

There really IS a beaver!

And very busy he is, too. He has built a dam which has caused a flood on rte 1A between Little Whitehead and Whitehead. This is a very popular trail for those going around the island, but right now don’t plan on being able to traverse it. There will be signs on-island reminding you to ‘take an alternate route.’

Harry J Miller

We regret to share news of the April 13 passing of Harry Miller, a long time supporter and leader of Monhegan Associates who served as President 1999-2003. Harry fully embodied the ideals of the Associates community centric stewardship of Monhegan’s Wild Lands; may his  acumen, grace, wit and dedication to Monhegan continue to help guide us.
