Bald Eagles of Merrymeeting Bay Boat Trip
When: Saturday, September 18, 8 am-12 pm
Where: Boothbay Harbor, ME
When Maine Audubon first began running this trip in 1969, sighting one or two eagles was all that could be expected. Since then, the Bald Eagle population has rebounded from the devastating effects of pesticide poisoning, and in 2013 we saw an amazing 66 eagles! We will board the boat in Boothbay Harbor for a trip across Sheepscot Bay to the Sasanoa River then up the Kennebec River to Merrymeeting Bay. Weather and tides permitting, we will return to Boothbay via the Kennebec. The sheltered tidal waters of Midcoast Maine offer some of the most pleasant and scenic cruising to be found anywhere—plus excellent wildlife watching. In addition to Bald Eagles, expect other raptors, seals, sturgeon, shorebirds, and waterfowl along the way.
