Full Moon  & Sunset Canoe Tours
8 p.m. Thursday and Friday. Tours also on  July 30, Aug. 6, Sept. 5. Scarborough Marsh Audubon Center, 92 Pine Point Road, Scarborough, $16.
Maine Audubon invites you to spend about 90 glorious minutes paddling around Scarborough Marsh as you experience the sights and sounds of its inhabitants beneath the full moon or during a lovely Maine sunset. You’ll keep an eye out for black-crowned night herons and snowy egrets, and if luck is on your side, you could encounter a harbor seal or muskrat living their best life in the water. Book your slot by giving them a ring at (207) 883-5100. Life jackets, canoes, paddles and a tour guide are all included.
