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!

Green spaces in large cities have become well known to provide excellent birding opportunities as neotropic migrants use this stop over habitat for refueling during their long travels. Evergreen Cemetery is one of the best known locations for observing this avain phenomon in southern Maine and we'll lead a daily walk during peak migration.

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