Spring Birding Extravaganza (SBE)

On Saturday, May 7 at 9:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. join the Harpswell Heritage Land Trust for Birding for Kids, a free, hands-on workshop for families. Participants will learn how to begin identifying birds through their shape, size, beaks, songs and habitat. The group will explore how differently shaped beaks are designed for different foods, listen to some common bird songs and go for a walk to try to identify birds using skills they’ve learned. This is a great way to enjoy the outdoors with your kids (or grandkids). Join us at Curtis Farm Preserve, 1554 Harpswell Neck Road, Harpswell. Bring binoculars.
