See how it’s done! Master carver Steve Valleau will be a special guest at Schoodic Institute on August 12, 2022 from 9:30am – 12pm and 1pm – 3:00pm, doing hands-on bird carving demonstrations outside of the Rockefeller Welcome Center. Visit with Steve, and pick up a carving knife yourself – there is no charge to give it a try! Then visit the display of bird carvings from the Wendell Gilley Museum inside the Welcome Center.

Steve has been the carver-in-residence at the Museum for 37 years.
