Field Trip: Kennebunk Plains

June 9 @ 8:30 am - 3:00 pm

For 2022, we require that participants over the age of twelve be fully vaccinated against Covid-19. Participants are welcome to arrange carpooling among themselves, but we will not meet at a central location beforehand. The trip leader will meet participants at the actual trip site.
********************************************

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.

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 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.
