Nature Tuesday (Winter)
with Davida Sky
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 .

It's the perfect party to shake away the winter blues and get ready for spring. Let's get together to celebrate our beloved Piping Plovers and all their shorebird friends.

Your help is essential to the success of this project. We will be holding two training sessions for anyone interested in volunteering. Please register here for the training on March 28th in Bath.
