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. The Sanford Lagoons is the most frequented birding spot in York County, and out of the 436 species of birds in Maine, about 230 have been spotted on the property.

We will depart Damariscotta Hannaford at 7 am.
