We were given the awesome opportunity to represent MYBC at the upcoming Maine Spring LIVE event coming up on April 27th at Maine Audubon in Falmouth! This event is going to be a day packed full of fun, with bird walks, live animal demonstrations, and outreach! Maine Public has partnered with Maine Audubon to co-host this event. MYBC will have a table where we can meet new young birders and help promote our club, as well as partake in the events that are going on that day. More information can be found here : https://maineaudubon.coursestorm.com/course/maine-spring-live-celebrating-science
For this event we highly encourage parents to join. There will be a lot of family friendly events going on throughout the day and while we (the co-coordinators) would love to attend each part, one or both of us will have to represent the club at our booth. So to get the full advantage of the day we invite you to attend with your young birder.
LOGISTICS: Dress in layers and wear comfortable, WATERPROOF shoes. We will be trekking through some wet, muddy fields, so rubber boots or waterproof hiking boots are best.
Also bring the following: lunch/snacks, hat & gloves, warm coat, filled water bottle, binoculars, and a backpack in which you'll keep your stuff. A journal is optional for the sketching. If you do not have binoculars, MYBC will provide you with a pair.
MEET UP and PICK UP: Meet us at 9:00 pm at the Maine Audubon parking lot (next to the Nature Center) at Gilsland Farm in Falmouth. We will meet at 9:00 am to set up our table and the fun starts at 10:00 am. If you would like to carpool out of Biddeford with Seth, or Westbrook with Marion, please indicate in your RSVP and appropriate arrangements will be made. Pick up will be at the same location at 3:00 pm (unless carpooling has been arranged).
