Clark Island Bird Walk
Join Maine Coast Heritage Trust land stewards and naturalists, Amanda Devine and Kirk Gentalen, for a guided bird walk through the fields, woods, and shoreline of Clark Island Preserve in St. George.
May is peak season for spotting migratory songbirds on their way down the coast as well as spotting Maine’s resident avians in their natural habitat making the transition from spring to summer.
Amanda and Kirk have a wealth of knowledge about the local flora and fauna and will share that along the way too.
What to bring:
- Binoculars if you have them
- A warm extra layer, hat, bug spray
- Snacks and water
- Sturdy shoes for hiking and mud
- Wearing light colored clothing and pants that can be tucked into your socks is always good tick prevention
Although Clark Island Preserve allows dogs on leashes, we ask that you leave your four-footed friends at home for this event.
There are no bathroom facilities at Clark Island Preserve.
Parking is very limited at Clark Island Preserve. Please park at the satellite lot we have arranged for this event and take the 5-minute walk to meet at the parking lot of the Craignair Inn (at the entrance to the preserve).
Please do not park in the parking lot designated for the Craignair Inn or on the shoulder of the road.
If there is heavy rain in the forecast, we will cancel the trip and notify you via email 24 hours prior to the event.
