Cloe Chunn of BBWC will lead a paddling excursion up the South Branch of the Marsh River in Frankfort. The group will meet at the Frankfort Boat Launch on Rt. 1A at 10am to paddle the rising tide 4 miles up to its head. After a picnic lunch, when the tide turns, the group will paddle back down, arriving back at the boat launch around 3pm. The outing is a wonderful opportunity to observe wildlife, which may include ducks, marsh birds, warblers, saltmarsh sharptail sparrows, eagles, ospreys, as well as saltmarsh grasses in late bloom. Participants will need to bring their own canoe or kayak, paddle, PFD, water, lunch, binoculars, and protection from sun, wind, rain, and insects. The group is limited to 12. To register, call Cloe at 207-338-1147. The outing is free and open to the public.
BBWC invites the public to discover the “other end” of the Little River Community Trail where less foot traffic maintains a wilderness feel. The group will meet at the Hutchinson Center parking lot on Rt. 3 in Belfast, 80 Belmont Avenue at 10am. This nature outing offers an opportunity to observe various trees, mosses, and lichens along the trail. Bring water, a snack, and protection from rain and insects. For more info, call Cloe Chunn, who will lead the outing, at 207-338-1147. The outing is free and open to the public
