Change in Bird Monitoring at Scarborough Marsh

On Saturday with the heat index, it is suppose to be 107 degrees with high humidity, after talking with several other people, we decided that we should not do the bird monitoring on Saturday as usual. We can not postpone it until next weekend since we will be doing the Insect and Plant Biodiversity Day on July 27 (We hope people will consider coming to that.) So I thought we might be creative, if anyone is interested in doing a section, please be in touch and I will give you the materials for that section. You can reach me at smac@maineaudubon.org or call 207-883-5100 and press 0.

Also please put August 17 from 7-10 for the next bird monitoring event on your calendar.Thank You, Linda
