The Annex

The Annex Learning Center is an extension of the Maine Lakes Resource Center and aims to engage visitors using hands-on education. The Annex offers a variety of courses ranging from natural history to graphite drawing.  Whether viewing the stages of development of wood frogs or setting up an easel on the stream-side dock, the Annex offers experiences for all ages and all skill levels. Here, art and science share the stage as learners come to understand the powerful connections between the two. The Annex is located just down the road from the Maine Lakes Resource Center at 171 Main St. in the Belgrade Lakes Village. The Annex is connected to the Belgrade Lakes Post Office and has public docks located on the stream directly behind the building.

If you think you might be interested in The Annex Book Club, please respond so we can begin to plan for February and beyond through the summer season.

We will meet monthly for two hours …

We would like to know if you prefer a weekend (morning or PM) or an evening during the week. This will be an opportunity to continue to self-improve through learning  about science and art and all of its manifestations.
