Field Trip: Weskeag Marsh, S. Thomaston

August 26, 2023 @ 7:00 am - 9:00 am

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.

We will look for the early wave of south-bound shore birds at this Knox County hot spot. Meet at the parking lot on Buttermilk Lane in South Thomaston at 7:00 AM. A spotting scope is very helpful.

Weskeag Marsh in South Thomaston is one of Maine’s best birding marshes. The marsh is a mix of salt, brackish, and freshwater habitat. It supports cattails and grass, potholes and mud flats. It is a mix of brook, stream, and river. It is bordered by forest, scrubland, and hayfields. In short, the 1,300-acre complex of protected lands contains a good variety of habitats.

Directions: From Route 1 in Thomaston, turn onto Buttermilk Lane and in 0.8 miles look for the parking turnout at the marsh.

We welcome birders of all ages and skill levels. For more information, call trip leader, Don Reimer, at (207) 975-5466 (cell).
