Hello. Today I am going to teach you about Maine!
My state Natural Wonder is Acadia National Park. It is located in the southwest of Maine. The park has mountains, lakes, woodlands, ocean coastline and ponds. The park was renamed Acadia in 1929. More then 3.4 Million People visited the park in 2019.
My manmade wonder is the Cape Neddick light. It is located in York, Maine. In 1874 congress appropriated $15,000 to build a light house. Its stands on Nuddle island about 100 yards off Cape Neddick.
Maine’s Historical wonder is old sow whirlpool. The whirlpool is caused by local bathymety. The Sow whirlpool is the 5th significant whirlpool worldwide.
The state Hero is Steven King. He was born in Sep 21 1947. He lives in Portland Maine right now. Steven king has written 97+ books in his career.
The State symbol is the Maine coon cat. The cat has three different names Coon cat, Maine cat, and Maine shag. Maine coon cats are the largest domestic cat breed in the world. When they are happy to see their owner, they say “hello” with a soft chirp. Maine coon cats have large multi layer paws to help them walk on snow.
I hope you learned something about Maine. And I learned something too.
