Ornithologist John Drury will lead this walk to find the returning warblers in May. He will show you the best places to spot these beautiful little songbirds. Date to be determined.
Thursdays, June 20 – September 12
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.
