Free

with Davida Sky

Calendar Next session starts Feb 25, 2020 at 1:30 pm

Next meeting: February 25, 1:30-3 pm
Location: River Point Conservation Area in Falmouth 

Tracks are bounding, buds are swelling, and birds are singing. We’ll see what we find on trails and on the Presumpscot River. Our prewalk showed opportunities for great winter tree ID, lots of animal tracks, and birds a-flying and swimming. Hope you can join us.

These are previously trampled trails, but ungroomed, so be sure to bring traction for your boots and hiking poles if you like. You might find Binoculars and 10x magnifier helpful.

Directions: River Point abuts the Falmouth Crossing Shopping Center on ME Routes 26/100 in Falmouth, just opposite Maine Turnpike/I-95 Exit 53.Drive into the shopping center to the end and park on the Hannafords side. Facing Hannaford's the trail network starts at the end of a wooden railroad overpass to the right .

 

Birding Basics: Making it Count (eBird intro)

Free

with Doug Hitchcox

Calendar Next available session starts Feb 25, 2020 at 7 pm

FREE

Location: Gilsland Farm, Falmouth

To cap off our Birding Basics series, we are offering a free class to teach the basics of using eBird.org, a database for observations by the Cornell Lab of Ornithology. Through citizen science, many questions are being answered about even our most common birds, and participating in these projects is an easy way that you can 'give back' to the birds. We will also cover basics of contributing to the Maine Bird Atlas (maine.gov/birdatlas), so anyone interested in that project should attend as well!

"Big Night" Open House

$5
Calendar Next available session starts Mar 5, 2020 at 3 pm

Location: Gilsland Farm, Falmouth

Spring is Coming!!

Come to our Open House to learn more about one of our favorite springtime events - BIG NIGHT!

Big Nights happen in early spring when it's rainy and the temperature rises to around 40-degrees. That's when all the salamanders and other amphibians begin their journey from their winter habitat to their breeding grounds - vernal pools. Unfortunately, that journey often crosses roads so volunteers gather at known crossing spots to help these amphibians make their journey safely. 

At our event we'll have:

Presentations by Maine Audubon Conservation Biologist Sarah Haggerty at 3:30, 4:30, 5:30, 6:30 and 7:30 pm

Ongoing slideshow, games, books, and activities about vernal pools, amphibians, and turtles.

Join us to learn more about this important phenomenon.  We'll have learning opportunities for all ages!
