RESCHEDULED Field Trip: Kennebunk Plains

June 11 @ 7:00 am - 3:00 pm

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.
********************************************

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.

For those coming from the north who are interested in carpooling, we will meet at the Damariscotta Hannaford parking lot at 7:00 am. Otherwise, we will meet at the Kennebunk Service Plaza on Rt. 95 (southbound) at 8:30 AM. 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.
