Warbler Walk


May 27, Monday 7:30 a.m., 

Skoog Park

It’s that time of year again, the woods are coming alive with returning songbirds. On this 1-2 hour walk,  ornithologist John Drury will show us the many varieties of warblers as they migrate through our island. Join us and learn techniques to identify unique plumage and calls. Expect damp and uneven terrain, though it should be fine for most walkers.  Bring boots, binoculars, and a camera if you have them. FREE!

Volunteer Trail Day


June 18, Tuesday, 9 a.m.

Skoog Park

Description:Join VLT steward, Kerry Hardy for 2-3 hours of trail maintenance, pushing back brush, installing signage, and accomplishing other tasks. Experience and tools are a great addition to these monthly expeditions, but a willingness to help is best of all. Meet at Skoog Park and carpool to a preserve. Wear appropriate clothing (long sleeves and long pants) hiking boots, and bug repellent. Free!

Summer Bird Walks

Each Thursday this summer, VLT will offer a bird walk in partnership with Maine Coast Heritage Trust (MCHT). In June and September, a local, knowledgeable and enthusiastic birder will lead the walks. July and August will be led by MCHT steward Kirk Gentalen. They will show you where to find the most interesting birds, and tips on how to identify them. Bring binoculars if you have them. Expect uneven terrain, but it should be generally fine for most walkers. Meet at Skoog Park to venture out to a preserve. Free, all are welcome.
