Field Trip: Viles Arboretum, Augusta

May 15 @ 7:00 am - 3:00 pm

Mid-Coast Audubon, emerging from our Covid-dictated inactivity, has decided to recommence spring birding field trips in 2021. There will be safety measures, at least initially. They are as follows:

  • The previously mandated social distancing and mask wearing is required for all attendees.
  • There will be no carpooling unless those wishing to do so have all been fully vaccinated. We will not meet at a central point and carpool to the field trip site, instead will meet at the site.
  • Those participants that have a scope should bring it because sharing of scopes is discouraged.

We will not be eating at restaurants, so trip participants should bring a lunch for all-day trips. In case of inclement weather, people interested in attending should call 207-549-5257 to find out if the trip is cancelled.

Join us as we continue our pursuit of spring migrants at this noted hotspot. The 224-acre Pine Tree State Arboretum has fields, marshes, ponds, gardens, and woods making for a diverse habitat for birds. Bobolinks, bluebirds, and tree sparrows can be seen in the meadows, warblers in the woods, and ducks and wading birds in the ponds.

We will meet at Viles Arboretum at 7:00 AM. We welcome birders of all skill levels. For more information, or in the event of inclement weather, please call Trip Leader, Lew Purinton, at 207-549-5257 (home) or cell 207-215-1913.
