Wildlife Wonders of the Weskeag

Thursday, August 15, 2019

Event Time: 10:00 am

Weskeag Marsh parking lot on Buttermilk Lane, Thomaston

Georges River Land Trust and Friends of the Weskeag will co host Wildlife Wonders of the Weskeag, a bird, wildlife, and salt marsh habitat walk in the Weskeag Marsh on Thursday, August 15 at 10 am. Speaker for the event is Keel Kemper, Regional Wildlife Biologist with Maine Department of Inland Fisheries and Wildlife. The walk is free and the public invited to attend.

Kemper works to maintain and improve wildlife habitat conditions, maximize biological diversity and protect unique natural areas. He works on various wildlife issues from Bangor to Belfast, to Augusta, to Brunswick. Though IFW biologists are known for their game species management (moose, deer, bear, etc.), they also take part in endangered species conservation, have a research branch, manage state wildlife management areas (such as the R. Waldo Tyler Wildlife Management Area), and monitor state-held conservation easements. Keel will be able to answer all your Maine wildlife related questions.

Participants should meet at the Weskeag Marsh parking lot on Buttermilk Lane, and we’ll walk to the observation platform on the northern end of the R. Waldo Tyler WMA. We’ll look for birds and discuss a broad range of current fish and wildlife issues in the state of Maine. Dress for an easy walk in the woods, and bring your bug spray.

Georges River Land Trust is committed to protecting the ecosystems and traditional heritage of the Georges River watershed region. For additional activities and more information, visit or phone (207) 594-5166.
