CARIBOU BOG CONSERVATION AREA, Orono

Sunday, September 5, 8-10:30am Leader: Gordon Russell The restored wetlands in Boulder Pond and Black Pond (formerly known as the Taylor Bait Ponds) are now being actively managed to attract shorebirds and waterfowl. Late summer to early fall is the best time to come for shorebirds, as this is the height of their migration through our region. CBCA can often be a good spot for mammal sightings as well. Directions: From Forest Avenue in Orono, follow Taylor Road (aka the “Dump Road”) 0.3 miles to a slight left onto Putnam Road. We will meet in the trailhead parking area in front of the gate.
