Field Trip: Biddeford Pool and Environs
March 11, 2023 @ 8:30 am - 3:00 pm
This trip will bring fine viewing of sea birds, raptors, and early migrants. Historically, this area has had wintering Snowy Owls. Biddeford Pool is a big sandy tidal area accessed through Hill’s Beach. Additional nearby location options include Pine Point where the Scarborough River empties into the Atlantic ocean, and Scarborough Marsh, Maine’s largest expanse of salt marsh.
For those coming from the north who are interested in carpooling, we will meet at the Damariscotta Hannaford parking lot at 6:30 am. Otherwise, we will meet at the East Point Sanctuary at 8:30 am at the end of Lester B. Orcutt Blvd. in Biddeford. For more information, or in the event of inclement weather, please call the Trip Leader, (TBA soon).
All are welcome! You don’t need to be an Audubon member or have advanced birding skills to join us. We simply hope to instill interest in the natural world through an understanding of how birds live and thrive in our area.
Continuing for 2023, we require that participants over the age of twelve be fully vaccinated against Covid-19.
