WESTPORT ISLAND — During this fall’s Great Maine Outdoor Weekend, Kennebec Estuary Land Trust invites birders of all abilities to the Carl and Barbara Segerstrom Preserve at Squam Creek at 8 a.m. Saturday.

Led by volunteer and local birding enthusiast, Robert Carnicella, folks will scout for both fall migrant and resident bird species in KELT’s newest preserve.

At 159 acres, Segerstrom Preserve includes field, forest, and wetland habitats. It is an area rich in tidal waterfowl and wading bird habitats and contains terrain attractive to a variety of songbirds. The two-mile trail is relatively flat and provides for a relaxed hike with plenty to observe along the way, including historic cemeteries and cellar holes.

Birders should wear footwear that can get muddy and bring a pair of binoculars.

Sign up for the walk by visiting www.kennebecestuary.org or call 442-8400.

To get to the preserve: From Route 1, take ME-144 South for approximately 6.5 miles. Turn right on West Shore Road (Upper) and drive about 0.5 miles to the property. The parking lot and kiosk is located on the left after crossing the causeway over Squam Creek.
