Nature Tuesday (Winter)
with Davida Sky
Next meeting: January 14
Location: Kettle Cove, Cape Elizabeth.
If there is a cancellation we will email you on Tuesday morning
We plan to do some coastal birding with Carol Beyna who will have her scope so that we can see details, but please bring your binoculars. We’ll visit two sites: first, Kettle Cove in Cape Ellizabeth (64 Kettle Cove Rd., Cape Elizabeth) and second, Dyer Point (221-299 Two Lights Road, Cape Elizabeth). Our prewalk showed Surf Scoters, Black Scoters, Common Loons, Eiders, Long Tails, Harlequins, and Purple Sandpipers.
If folks are interested we could prolong our trip with a stop at the Back Bay in Portland. Please dress warmly; it’s windy on the shore. Even if the weather does not allow for birding, we will still meet at Kettle Cove to walk the trails, check for tracks, and winter ID trees and plants. In this case ice grippers and/or walking poles will be helpful. Also: The seed pods and buds are interesting, so your 10X magnifier would be a plus.

Project WILD's hands-on approach to learning engages students in investigating the world around them, connecting them to conservation careers, and participating in solid STEM activities.
The NEW REVISED AND UPDATED Curriculum and Activity Guide can easily be adapted to meet the learning requirements for academic disciplines ranging from science and environmental education to social studies, math, and language arts. All curriculum materials are backed by sound educational practices and theory.
Educators may choose one or more Project WILD activities to teach a concept or skill. The activities may be integrated into existing courses of study, or an entire set of activities may serve effectively as the basis for a specific course.
