Spring Birding Extravaganza 2024 Line-Up

One of the joys of spring is the return of birds of all shapes, sizes and colors. Who doesn’t love stepping outside to a chorus of birdsong or catching a glimpse of bright red or yellow in the trees? The new warmth of spring and the longer days draw birds to make their spring migration. The window of time before the leaves come out provides a perfect opportunity to get a good look at our feathered neighbors. To help you identify and learn more about our local birds, several conservation groups collaborate each spring to offer the Birding Extravaganza! Our fellow partnering organizations: Harpswell Heritage Land Trust and Kennebec Estuary Land Trust. Check out the full 2024 line-up below!

Have some kiddos at home? Come to the Ecology Center from 12-2 on Sundays to make a binocular craft! The Ecology Center will be open on Sundays for visitors to make a set of toilet paper tube binoculars. You can also get an up close look at our bird mounts, including song birds and raptors before you try to find them in the field.
