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 email@example.com 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

Restoring Maine's Meadows Workshop
with Heather McCargo
Location: Gilsland Farm
Members: $30, Nonmembers: $40
Meadows are beautiful and dynamic landscapes that support a wide variety of plants, pollinators, birds and other wildlife. In the last half century in New England, meadows have lost a huge diversity of native plant species with the loss of rural pastures and the expanded mowing brought on by tractor mowers. In this class, we will explore how to create and manage a meadow that supports native plant species. Join Heather McCargo, Executive Director of Wild Seed Project, to learn what it takes to create a native meadow from scratch, how to diversify an existing meadow, or ways to transition a lawn to a meadow. Bring diversity and beauty back into your landscape a native meadow.
