    The treatment ponds at the Sanford Sewerage may be smelly, but they are magnets for waterfowl in the fall. Join our naturalist, Doug Hitchcox, for a bird walk around this property to study the ducks and geese, plus the sparrows and other migrants that frequent this hot spot in the fall.

    No registration required. Meet Doug in the parking lot at the end of Gavel Road in Sanford (linked above in the “map” link).

    Join our staff naturalist, Doug Hitchcox, for a morning van trip to a local hot spot in search of birds! Mid November can host a variety of birds: from swarms of sparrows to the hoards of geese and of course the potential for rare birds to show up! The destination of this trip will remain TBA so we can be flexible based on what birds are being seen, though we are likely to stay around York and Cumberland Counties. This will be a van trip, leaving from Gilsland Farm in Falmouth, so register early because space is limited.

    Few spots in Maine are more productive for waterfowl in the fall than Sabattus Pond. Located in Androscoggin County, this body of water attracts a variety of diving and dabbling ducks. So far this year, highlights have included: Canvasback, Redhead, both scaups, and hundreds of Ruddy Ducks.
