Field Trip: Green Point Wildlife Area
October 24 @ 8:00 am - 4:00 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 depart Damariscotta Hannaford at 8 am. Trip Leader, Dennis McKenna, (207) 563-8439
