Established in 1970, the objective of the chapter is to foster an appreciation of our natural environment, with a focus on birds. The chapter sponsors programs, field trips and scholarships.
The chapter’s membership area is a rectangle running the coast from Freeport to East Boothbay, inland to Hallowell, south-west to Lisbon Falls and back south to Freeport. You automatically become a member of the Merrymeeting Chapter when you join as a member of Maine Audubon and your address is within the designated membership area. As a member of our Chapter, you will all the benefits of Maine Audubon membership, and you will receive our chapter newsletter, “The Call”.
