    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.
