Spring Birding Extravaganza: Exploratory Bird Walk at Tarbox Preserve


Join us for an exploratory walk at one of Brunswick-Topsham Land Trusts newer preserves, Tarbox Preserve. John Berry is leading this trip on an open, mixed forested trail for the first time and we’ll see what kinds of birds frequent the area in May. The mile long trail leads to a lovely overlook of the Cathance River. John is a sharp eyed, experienced birder and photographer. Bring your binocs, a hat, and some sturdy walking shoes.


*****Registration is required and capped at 11 people.  Social distancing, and face masks are required.  Please do not attend if you are feeling unwell.*****


What is the Spring Birding Extravaganza?

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 draws 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! All events are free and open to all. Advance registration is required and each organization follows COVID-19 policies to keep everyone safe. Visit the website for each organization for more information, Harpswell Heritage Land Trust and Kennebec Estuary Land Trust
