I love craft fairs the way football fans love the super bowl. I once became so excited after buying a cutting board from an Amish craft booth I nearly cried.

 

So I was super excited when Nik came in to chat with us about the Wells Reserve at Laudholm and mentioned there was a crafts fair this weekend I got super excited.  Here's what Nik had to share about the amazing reserve!

 

The Wells Reserve at Laudholm spans 2,250 acres of marsh and farmland tucked away on the southern coast of Maine. With seven miles of trails, three estuaries, a pristine beach, fragile dunes and wetlands, forests, fields, laboratories and classrooms, the site is a nationally-recognized coastal research, education, and monitoring facility.

 

But the Wells Reserve at Laudholm is not just a NOAA outpost. Since a group of citizens first banded together to save the property in the late 1970s, this protected place has continued to evolve from a 19th century saltwater farm into a center for the public understanding of our changing world through science and art. "

 

The crafts fair featuring local craftsmen and craftswomen will be held on the reserve this Saturday and Sunday from 10am to 4pm, and is sure to be a ton of fun. Plus the trails and science center make this a great family friendly spot.

 

My only request is that if you spot any cutting boards you snap a pic and send it my way! ;-)
