The Naturalist's Notebook

The Naturalist’s Notebook is a unique exploratorium, shop and 13.8-billion-year brain-building adventure that fills three floors of a lovely 1895 building in Seal Harbor, Maine. It was founded in 2009 by artist/photographer Pamelia Markwood and her husband, Craig Neff, a longtime Sports Illustrated editor and writer and the former editor of Sports Illustrated For Kids. A combination of Craig and Pamelia’s interests, creative talents, and love of learning, The Naturalist’s Notebook is a handmade space that merges nature, science, arts and the frontier of knowledge in interactive installations and projects that are fun and accessible for all ages.
