Field Trip: Brunswick Landing

Join Merrymeeting Audubon to explore the recently decommissioned Brunswick Naval Air Station property. The sandplain grassland community and the pitch pine-heath barren community are both ranked as critically imperiled in Maine because of extreme rarity. We can expect to find early returning migrants among the open areas and pine forests. Migratory waterfowl, shorebirds, and marsh birds utilize the open water, mudflat, and marsh habitats of Brunswick Landing. Migratory grassland birds, including Upland Sandpipers, utilize the sandplain grassland habitats. The forests and woodlands are used by many neotropical migratory songbirds and a number of migratory raptors. Meet at Brunswick Landing, Bath Road Entrance Parking Area
