Field Trip: Weskeag Marsh, S. Thomaston
August 4 @ 7:30 am - 9:30 am
We will look for the first wave of south-bound shore birds at this Knox County hot spot. Meet at the parking lot on Buttermilk Lane in South Thomaston at 7:30 AM. A 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 is a mix of cattails and grass. It is a mix of potholes and mud flats. It is a mix of brook, stream, and river. It is bordered by forest, scrubland, and hayfields. In short, it contains a good variety of habitats in its 1300 acres.
Directions: From Route 1 in Thomaston, turn onto Buttermilk Road 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, Dennis McKenna, at (207) 563-8439 (home) or cell 207-522-2891.
