Bird Watching & Marsh Talk at Rough Meadows Wildlife Sanctuary

Bird Watching & Marsh Talk at Rough Meadows Wildlife Sanctuary
Tuesday, May 7, 9-10:30AM
In-person at Rough Meadows

Mass Audubon’s David Moon will guide participants through Rough Meadows Wildlife Sanctuary in Rowley in search of some of the many birds that make their homes in the Great Marsh. Early May is a time of increasing migration of tropical birds on their way to breeding habitats both in this region and further into the north country of Maine and Canada. David will share what he is seeing and hearing for birders of any level including beginners.
Recent advances in low-impact techniques hold great promise for helping the marsh to keep up with sea level rise, and David will also show the group what is going on with the salt marsh restoration work that they are planning at the sanctuary and across the Great Marsh.
The tour will be on even terrain on dry roads and trails, but for some moments might walk on and across squishy spots in the salt marsh. The total distance may be about 1.5 miles. The group will meet in the Rough Meadows Wildlife Sanctuary parking lot on Patmos Rd. in Rowley.
Rain date will be Thursday, May 9. Registration is appreciated for this in-person program. To sign up or for more information on this or other programs, check the Rowley Library web site at, or call (978) 948-2850.
