    Join us each Thursday for an easy stroll through Maine Audubon’s Gilsland Farm Sanctuary.  We will walk the property looking for birds, wildlife and plants. Bring your binoculars and a field guide if you have one. Please dress to be comfortable outside for two hours.

    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 out.

    *We are temporarily stopping our Saturday bird walks because our leaders will be busy on field trips. We hope you join them on these fun adventures around the state: click here to see our upcoming trips.*

    Come and experience Alaska – the expanses of tundra covering the plains, hills and mountains provide a breathtaking backdrop for birding and wildlife adventures.

    Maine travelers marveled at the brilliant breeding plumages of 75 species of birds, and were astonished by the herds of reindeer and muskox grazing the tundra. Bird species and large grazers, as well as grizzly bears were photographed from a safe distance.

    Presenters: Ron and Lee Davis, Al and Nancy Larson
