Field Trip: Green Point Wildlife Area, Dresden

October 14, 2023 @ 8:00 am - 1:00 pm

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. We require that participants over the age of twelve be fully vaccinated against Covid-19.

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. For questions, please call trip leader, Will Brussard, at (207) 837-9520.

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.
