Downeast Maine Puffin and Boreal Species Trip.

Thursday, June 30 - Sunday, July 3

Join us on our annual trip to Machias area in Downeast Maine to see Atlantic Puffins, Razorbills, Common Murres, and Arctic Terns. We also tour beautiful coastlands and boreal forests in search of nesting warblers and boreal specialties such as Spruce Grouse, Boreal Chickadee, and Gray Jay. We explore the blueberry barrens , and coastal wetlands for other species such as Sandhill Crane, Black Terns, Nelson’s Sparrow, Upland Sandpiper, and potential rarities.
The cost of the trip is $240.00 per person for BBC members ($255 for non-members), which includes the boat trip but not lodging, or food.

NOTE ON LIMITED MOBILITY: We don’t have any technical or rugged hiking, however we are on our feet a lot looking for boreal species, which can add up to several miles of walking per day. The boat landing on Machias can be slippery and treacherous, but participants can safely stay on the boat and still encounter all the breeding birds at close range if they are concerned about the landing. This trip is limited to 15 participants.

Please contact Deborah to inquire about availability or being added to the wait list.
