Field Trip: Kennebunk Plains

June 8 @ 8:30 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 207-563-8439 to find out if the trip is cancelled.

********************************************
The 1,300-acre sandplain grasslands is home to breeding grassland species found almost nowhere else in the state such as grasshopper and vesper sparrows, upland sandpipers, and Eastern meadowlarks. The early successional stage of pitch pine barrens attracts warblers, buntings, and other forest edge species.

We will meet at the Kennebunk Service Plaza on Rt 95 (southbound) at 8:30 AM. We welcome birders of all skill levels. For more information, or in the event of inclement weather, please call Trip Leader, Dennis McKenna, at (207) 563-8439 (home) or cell 207-522-2891.
