A Birding and Wildlife Adventure at the End of the World

$8

with Ron Davis

Calendar Next session starts Nov 8, 2019 at 7 pm

Location: Fields Pond

Early in 2019 Ron and Lee Davis traveled due south from Maine to Patagonia at the southern tip of South America.  There, they boarded a small ship that took them to Cape Horn and through the Strait of Magellan and Beagle Channel, after which they drove to Tierra del Fuego, Sierra Baguales and Torres del Paine to observe and photograph birds and other wildlife under a backdrop of spectacular peaks and glaciers. This illustrated talk will provide you with a vicarious experience of birding this remote and wild place at the end of the world.

Join us for a "bushel" of fun at the 32nd Annual Apple Day Celebration! It’s packed full of fall fun with games, workshops, cider-making and other "a-peeling" activities. Join us in our historic apple orchard to learn about bees and pollinators and why wildlife habitat is at the "core" of our mission!

We "picked" out a few highlights of the day:

Cider Press

Apple Toss

Scavenger Hunt

Crafts

Music by the "Sea Slugs"

Thank you to L.L. Bean and Sweetser’s Apple Barrel and Orchard for their support of Apple Day.

 

Bald Eagles of Merrymeeting Bay 2019

$85

with Doug Hitchcox

Calendar Next session starts Sep 21, 2019 at 8 am

Members: $60, Nonmembers: $85

Location: Boothbay Harbor

When Maine Audubon first began running this trip in 1969, sighting one or two eagles was all that could be expected. Since then, the Bald Eagle population has rebounded from the devastating effects of pesticide poisoning. During a recent trip we observed 66 eagles!

We will board the boat in Boothbay Harbor for a trip across Sheepscot Bay to the Sasanoa River then up the Kennebec River to Merrymeeting Bay. Weather and tides permitting, we will return to Boothbay via the Kennebec. The sheltered tidal waters of Midcoast Maine offer some of the most pleasant and scenic cruising to be found anywhere—plus excellent wildlife watching. In addition to bald eagles, expect other raptors, seals, sturgeon, shorebirds, and waterfowl along the way.
