Field Trip: Green Point Wildlife Area

  • Thursday, Oct 17, 2019 7:00am – 4:00pm
  • Green Point Wildlife Management Area [map] Dresden

A former orchard and farm, the area extends down to the shore of the Kennebec River forming the upper reaches of Merrymeeting Bay. A walk along the well-maintained old road passes through old orchards (often teeming with birds), small ponds and wetlands, and leads to a beautiful pine grove on a peninsula that provides a magnificent, expansive view of the water.

Expect a wide variety of migrant birds in the woodlands, fields, and wild-rice flats of this diverse area. Warblers and other woodland birds, sparrows and other field birds, waterfowl, and raptors may be seen on this walk.

We will depart Damariscotta Hannaford at 7 am.
