Calendar Next session starts Aug 27, 2019 at 1:30 pm
1 additional session on Sep 10, 2019

Next meeting: August 27

Late summer flowers are blooming.  Lets walk around Audubon in Falmouth and see what we can see. Identify what’s blooming, review the families we have learned:  Mint (Lamiaceae), Dogbane (Apocynaceae) and Composite (Asteraceae) and maybe add another family group if we are feeling daring.

It would be good to have available your 10X magnifier, binoculars and flower field guide, but feel free to come with just your curiosity! See you soon.

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.
