Tin Mountain Conservation Center will be presenting its annual Ducks & Doughnuts Field Trip on Saturday, April 10th from 9AM to noon. We will be looking in wetlands and other open waters for returning ducks such as common mergansers, wood ducks, ring-necked ducks, golden eyes, and other early migrants. Join the Tin Mountain staff exploring portions of the meandering old course of the Saco River, inundated farm fields, tributary streams, wetlands, and hay meadows for more than just ducks.
The field trip consists of driving to a number of stops in the North Fryeburg area from which the group takes short excursions to determine the birds that have returned from their exotic winter homes to the south. Meet at 9:00 AM at the parking lot at Sherman Farms. Bring your binoculars or borrow a pair from us, and we’ll bring doughnuts. Donations of $3 per person and $5 per family are appreciated; members are free.
This program is jointly sponsored by L.L. Bean and the Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) with whom Tin Mountain Conservation Center and many local landowners cooperate on a variety of land conservation measures from their office in Conway, NH.
