Field Trip: Weskeag Marsh, S. Thomaston

August 24 @ 7:00 am - 9:00 am

Weskeag Marsh in South Thomaston is one of Maine’s best birding marshes. This 1,300-acre complex features a mix of salt, brackish, and freshwater habitats, including cattails, grasses, potholes, and mud flats. The marsh is nourished by brooks, streams, and rivers, and is bordered by forest, scrubland, and hayfields, offering a diverse environment for birdwatching.

Join us at this Knox County hotspot to witness the first wave of south-bound shorebirds. Meet at the parking lot on Buttermilk Lane in South Thomaston at 7:00 AM. If you have one, we recommend bringing a spotting scope.

Directions: From Route 1 in Thomaston, turn onto Buttermilk Lane and in 0.8 miles look for the parking turnout at the marsh (coordinates: 44.07916, -69.14174).

We welcome birders of all ages and skill levels. For more information or to sign up, please send an email to Mael Glon (midcoastfieldtrips@maineaudubon.org) with your name and telephone number.
