Field Trip to Captain Fitzgerald Recreation & Conservation

July 12 @ 9:30 am - 12:00 pm

Visit one of Maine’s few remaining Sandplain Pine Barren communities, and you will learn how to identify endemic native plant species and how to recreate elements of this native plant community in your home landscape. If the weather permits, we will see dozens of pollinating insects and birds, so bring your hand lenses and binoculars. We’ll have extra on hand if you don’t have these items. Come prepared with sunscreen, water, and good walking shoes.

Class Level: All Levels. Suitable for teens 14+.
