Bird Watching at the Shaker Bog

Trained naturalist and birdwatcher Carol Beyna will lead groups to the fascinating habitats of the Shaker Bog. The bog was originally built by the Shakers in 1816 as a reservoir to power their mills, but today, this 150-acre wetland has become a diverse ecosystem; the feeding ground of moose, the home of beaver, mink, fischer, fox and an occasional black bear. The combination of woodland and wetland provides an ideal habitat for a wide variety of songbirds, game fowl, woodpeckers and more. Learn to beckon chickadees, nuthatches and other small birds. Possible sighting also include pileated woodpeckers, loons, ducks, Canada geese, and hawks. This program is designed for families, young and old, and promises a fun and memorable experience in the Maine woods.

Dress for the weather and wear appropriate footwear for a 2-hour, moderate trail walk in the woods. Bug repellent and sunscreen recommended. Bring your camera, binoculars and bottled water. Tour size limited to 12.

Scheduled dates for Bird Watching are:
Saturday, May 30 from 8am-10am

Fees: Adults $5 and Children $2.
