Michelle's life is a colorful map of exploration and adventure. From the iconic streets of New York to the sunny shores of Florida, the jagged coast of Maine to the rugged terrain of Montana, she's been fortunate to call some of America's most beautiful states home. Beyond the U.S., Michelle's wanderlust has taken her on a motorcycle journey through India, led her to teach English in Hanoi, and saw her studying Spanish in Guatemala. Michelle graduated with a communications degree from the S. I. Newhouse School of Public Communications at Syracuse University and in addition to a career in advertising has worked with OnlyInYourState since 2016, where her love for travel and storytelling converges.

Maine’s history is long and quite interesting. From a historic hotel where Prohibition-era politician engaged in things they’d never dream of today (okay, let’s be honest, they would definitely do some of this stuff) to this old tavern where Maine became a state, there are quite a few places to visit that will provide a glimpse of what happened long before we were here. But, before any settlers were here and even before many Native American people arrived, The Red Paint People called this area home. This wildlife refuge offers a small glimpse into this group, of which very little is known.
Hirundo Wildlife Refuge is located at 15 Hudson Rd., Alton, Maine. They can be reached on 207-394-2171 and you can learn more about the area on their website. Stay up to date on what’s happening by following them on Facebook. The refuge is open every day from 9 a.m. to dusk.
Maine’s only Smithsonian-affiliated museum is dedicated to preserving knowledge and education about Maine’s native people. Click here to learn all about it and plan you visit.
