Calendar Next session starts Feb 27, 2018 at 1:30 pm

Tuesday, February 27 from 1:30 to 3 pm is our next Nature Tuesday.

We have chosen a beautiful part of the Falmouth Land Trust off Blackstrap Road.  The walk will follow a meandering stream with little waterfalls and last week had intricate ice formations.  The woods have white oaks which we have not often found on our walks.  We may also see the evergreen polypody fern; it grows only on rocks and many can be found by the stream.  

Ellen Klain will help lead the walk She will show us the damage a porcupine has done to her trees and some porcupine tracks if conditions are good.

We will park on the road in front of Ellen’s home and start our walk there.

1 Hemlock Cove Road, Falmouth, ME 04105

The conditions could be snowy, icy and or muddy.  We recommend wearing boots and bringing cleats and perhaps snow shoes.

Here is a bit of info on the Preserve: http://falmouthlandtrust.org/?page_id=160

And Porcupines in the Winter from "Naturally Curious with Mary Holland"

See you then!

Seabirds of Matinicus Rock 2018

$100

with Doug Hitchcox

Calendar Next session starts Jun 8, 2018 at 8 am

Members: $80 Nonmembers: $100

A 32-acre island 18 miles offshore at the mouth of Penobscot Bay, Matinicus Rock is one of Maine’s most important seabird nesting colonies. Here, Atlantic Puffins, Razorbills, Common Murres, Black Guillemots, Arctic and Common Terns, and Laughing Gulls all gather to nest. Motoring out of New Harbor aboard the Hardy III, we’ll cross the mouth of Muscongus Bay, passing close by the seabird colony at Eastern Egg Rock where roseate terns nest. With plenty of open-water habitat along our route, we could see a good array of pelagic species, including Wilson’s Storm-petrels, Northern Gannets, Common Murres, phalaropes, Great and Sooty Shearwaters, Black-legged Kittiwakes, and jaegers.

Info packet coming soon!

Warbler Walks at Capisic Pond

Calendar Next session starts May 11, 2018 at 7 am
1 additional session on May 18, 2018

Location: Capisic Pond

Green spaces in large cities have become well known to provide excellent birding opportunities as neotropic migrants use these stop over habitats for refueling during their long travels. Capisic Pond is one of these spots we'll lead walks at during peak migration and provides a nice mix of habitat compared to the Evergreen walks. 

Monday through Thursday at Evergreen Cemetery (meet in the back by the ponds) and Friday at Capisic Pond (at Macy Street).
