Field Trip: Green Point Wildlife Area, Dresden

October 12 @ 8:00 am - 12:00 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 at this hotspot.

Because parking is very limited at the wildlife area, we strongly recommend carpooling. Those interested in carpooling should meet at the Damariscotta Hannaford at 7am. We will meet at the wildlife area at 8 am.

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 (coordinates: 44.05753, -69.77290).

For more information, please call trip leader Will Broussard at (207) 837-9520. To sign up, please send an email to Mael Glon (midcoastfieldtrips@maineaudubon.org) with your name and phone number.
