EARLY SUMMER BIRDING IN CARIBOU BOG
June 11 @ 8:00 am - 11:00 amFree
Please join us for a leisurely bird walk through portions of the Caribou Bog Conservation Area (CBCA), an Orono Land Trust property where volunteers have been rehabilitating the former Taylor Bait Ponds to provide improved habitat for ducks, shorebirds, wading birds, and other species that breed and feed around ponds and freshwater marshes. The hiking trails between the ponds host a wide variety of forest-dwelling species, including many warblers. CBCA can be a good spot for mammal sightings as well, including North American river otters that swim in the ponds and cavort along the banks.
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.
Leaders: Shane Barker, Sharon Wilson Barker, and Tara Barker
Saturday, June 11 (rain date June 12), 8-11 a.m.
