    Join us each Thursday for an easy stroll through Maine Audubon’s Gilsland Farm Sanctuary.  We will walk the property primarily looking for birds but won’t ignore any other wildlife or plants. Bring your binoculars and dress to be comfortable outside for two hours. Our total walk is usually 1.8 miles but people can leave early if needed.

    We meet near the main parking lot. If you arrive late we are typically by the pond for the first 15-20 minutes before heading into the West Meadow.

    Walks will be at 7:00AM again beginning in April.

    Participate in citizen science at Fields Pond Audubon Center by recording observations along a short trail around the Center. Learn how to collect and record data using iNaturalist and eBird. Families will gather the basic skills needed to keep track of important timing of natural events such as when flowers and fruits are visible and what pollinators and birds are present. We will observe native plants, shrubs and trees then look and listen for butterflies, bees, and birds along the trail.
