A concert of music and poetry to celebrate the life and work of Leonard Cohen will be held Saturday evening,at the Reversing Falls Sanctuary in Brooksville. The concert combines the singer/songwriting talents and harmonies of the folk duo Timbered Lake with the poetic offerings of local poet Paul Weiss. The concert will combine original work dedicated to Cohen with covers of Cohen's music and poetry.

Maine-Wabanaki REACH  and Reversing Falls Sanctuary invite you to an interactive story-telling experience. We will learn about events in the collective history of Wabanaki people (the Indigenous people of Maine) and Europeans and their descendants.
This is a participatory program appropriate for adults and teens. Our goal is to increase our understanding of colonization.
