    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.

    There will be no bird walk on Thursday, November 27th. Walks beginning on December 4th will start at 8:00am.

    The Maine Discovery Museum will be joining us for  hands-on science and art projects.

    Biodieversityday

    Become an Audubon Citizen Scientist! Join local experts for a survey of the marsh for the many different types of plants and insects, including butterflies and dragonflies. We will have a training session before we head out. Participants can choose plants or insects to survey.  After the surveys the two groups will reconvene and discuss their results.  The data collected will be compared to previous surveys and will serve as an indicator of the health of the marsh.

    Advance registration appreciated but not required.
