Nature

The FNCA is located on over 20 acres of natural pine forest bordering the Saco River. Our site is gorgeous! And our photographers love taking pictures of the beauty of Nature at the Assembly.

"More Pinecones Than Ever Before!"

Due to two Nor'easters in a row, there were more pinecones on the ground when the Work Weekend crew arrived than any time even the old timers could remember. Most of the first day of Work Weekend was spent raking pinecones off the road and paths to the cabins.

 

"Falcon on the Wood Pile"

According to the painters (of the Main Building before camp), this falcon sat on the same tree, on the same branch, every day waiting for its meal to run across the front lawn.

"Year of the Hoverfly"

© Sarah Grams 2018

These little hoverflys hadn't been seen before at camp, but this year there were hundreds and hundreds of them. Since they're flies, they don't bite, but they would land on you and suck the salt off your skin. It wasn't painful, but after a while, it certainly could get annoying.

"Little Tiny Flowers

© Trevor 2016

These flowers have been growing in the back field for decades, but only the lucky few ever get to see them because they always get mowed down a few days before camp starts. Luckily, I got here early this year.

Explanation: This large rock near the old rope swing was named "Bertha" way back when. Don't know by whom, but the name has stuck. Standing on Bertha with your head  above water, you could watch the ropeswingers rocket by just a few feet away.

During a huge thunderstorm one night, this large pine tree near the Bath House was struck by lightning! The lightning travelled down the trunk of the tree, leaving huge scars in the bark; then went horizontally through the ground, making a large furrow through the topsoil and pine needles. The electrical shock was felt by everyone who was awake in the nearby cabins; the jolt was felt as far away as the Main Building. The air was crackling, the electricity in it palpable, and the intensity and nearness of it made your skin prickle. WOW!

Every year when the ice on the Saco River breaks up, it is a thing of beauty. Some years, it as also a thing of danger and devastation. This particular year, the ice broke up, and then refroze several times. In the process,  large, thick chunks of ice collided and pile on top of each other and caused all sorts of damage to the banks of the river and the nearby trees.

NOTE: 1961 is our best estimate of when this photo was taken; it might be 1962. Not sure who's holding that monster-sized snapping turtle, but the rest of them left to right are: Aurelie Nichols, Garritt White, Lois Walton (now McCurdy), and Gard Perry.
