Field Trip: Popham Beach, Reid State Park

October 3 @ 8:00 am - 4:00 pm

NOTE - Since the gates at Popham State Beach don't open until 9 am, we'll delay our departure until 8 am. The sandy beaches at Popham Beach and Reid State Parks attract sandpipers and plovers during migration; likely waterbirds include eiders, loons, grebes, scoters, and guillemots; the adjacent salt marsh is habitat for herons and egrets; and, the forest edges often result in some warbler species. We will depart Damariscotta Hannaford at 8 am. Trip Leader, Dennis McKenna, (207) 563-8439
