Field Trip: Green Point Wildlife Area, Dresden

October 15 @ 8:00 am - 1:00 pm

A former orchard and farm, the wildlife area extends down to the shore of the Kennebec River forming the upper reaches of Merrymeeting Bay. A walk along the well-maintained old road passes through old orchards (often teeming with birds), small ponds and wetlands, and leads to a beautiful pine grove on a peninsula that provides a magnificent, expansive view of the river.

Expect a wide variety of migrant birds in the woodlands, fields, and wild-rice flats of this diverse area. Warblers and other woodland birds, sparrows and other field birds, waterfowl, and raptors may be seen on this walk. And we always have a nice lunch out somewhere!

We will meet at the wildlife area at 8 am. For those wishing to carpool, we will depart Damariscotta Hannaford at 7 am. All car poolers must be fully vaccinated. For questions, please call trip leader, Will Broussard at 207-837-9520. We welcome birders of all ages and skill levels.

Directions: On Route 128 (River Road) in Dresden, .8 mile north of the intersection of Indian Road and Route 128. Watch for a gravel parking area at a MIFW maintenance building on the west side of road.
