Late summer there is lots to see: the late bloomers, seeds and fruits, grasses, sedges and rushes all in seed, birds and tracks in the mud and fishes in the water. It is a beautiful walk!
Hope to see you there.

Thursday Morning Bird & Nature Walk
with Doug Hitchcox
Members: $5, Nonmembers: $8
Location: Gilsland Farm
Join us each Thursday for an easy stroll through Maine Audubon’s Gilsland Farm Sanctuary. We will walk the property primarily looking for birds but won’t ignore any other wildlife or plants. Bring your binoculars and dress to be comfortable outside for two hours. Our total walk is usually 1.8 miles but people can leave early if needed.
We meet near the main parking lot. If you arrive late we are typically by the pond for the first 15-20 minutes before heading into the West Meadow. Walks last approximately 2 hours.
A list of the most recent bird sightings from Gilsland Farm can be found here: ebird.org/ebird/hotspot/L251783
