Calendar Next session starts Mar 26, 2019 at 1:30 pm

Next meeting: March 26, 1:30-3 pm

Polly Haight Frawley will be joining us. Polly is a graduate of this year’s Maine Master Naturalist Class and prepared her capstone on the use of trees for medicinal purposes by the Wabenaki Confederation. She will share some  of her learnings with us as we walk around the meadow identifying the trees that the Wabenaki  used.   We’ll be looking for changes in buds and early arriving birds so it would be good to bring binoculars and a magnifying lens.

Rangeley Birding Festival

Calendar Next session starts Jun 7, 2019 at 7 pm

Join us June 7th - 9th for the inaugural Rangeley Birding Festival to experience the rich bird life that flourishes at the intersection of northern forest, stunning, clear lakes and the High Peaks of western Maine.

The inaugural Rangeley Birding Festival is dedicated to the memory of John Bicknell.

The Rangeley Lakes region is the premier birding destination for rare and sought-after species in New England. Deep in the heart of Maine's lush boreal forest, Rangeley provides a convenient hub to find northern specialties like Black-backed Woodpecker, Spruce Grouse, and Boreal Chickadee, as well as breeding warblers including Cape May, Bay-breasted, and Mourning.

What sets the Rangeley Birding Festival apart from all others is the breeding grounds. While other festivals hope to catch birds as they migrate through, in Rangeley they've reached their destination and are on territory. This means that birds are more reliable (though not guaranteed, this is still birding after all!) and displaying different behaviors than in migration. No other festival in New England provides such convenient access to so many boreal birds. Don't miss it!
