Get mugged for a good cause

University art students make and sell mugs to benefit wildlife refuge

ORONO - A group of students at the University of Maine in Orono is putting their art skills to the test. Over the past several weeks, the pupils in Constant Albertson's advanced art education course have been making ceramic mugs that they hope to sell to benefit the Hirundo Wildlife Refuge in Alton, a 2,400-acre nature preserve just 10 miles away from the University campus.
