One of my favorite places to visit is the Moosehead Lake area. Why is this area among my favorite places to visit? Well, it is a place where you are almost guaranteed to be able to see my favorite animal, the moose!! My daughter-in-law would disagree with this because we have never been able to find a moose when she is in the vehicle, so her belief is that there are really no moose in Maine. She won’t be in town during Moose Mainea so you will probably fare pretty well if you go searching for a moose in Greenville. Love ya, M, even if you do scare the moose away! 😉
Each spring, the town of Greenville, which is located at the head of the lake, hosts a month-long celebration in honor of its favorite resident – the moose! Moose Maina is being held this year from May 15 through June 12. Events are held during the month, for young and old alike. There will be a kids fun day, craft fair, canoe race, photo contest and more. Click HERE and scroll towards the middle of page for times and dates of events.
Mosey on to Greenville and join in on the festivities. A good time will be had by all.
As you travel down route 15, towards Greenville, keep an eye on the left side of the road after you pass the road to Shirley. Just shy of the DOT garage, in the swampy area, you MAY just be lucky enough to see a moose. I took a photo of this one last year in that very spot and as I glance through my moose photo’s, I have photo’s of at least five different moose from five different years right in this very spot. Good luck. Send me a photo of the moose that you find along the way.
