DAMARISCOTTA, Maine — Damariscotta Lake Watershed Association will sponsor a birding trip by canoe or kayak with ornithologist Tom Arter 8-11 a.m. Sunday, May 22. Meet at Damariscotta Lake State Park with your own canoe or kayak, PFD, paddle, binoculars, water bottle and anything else that will keep you comfortable. If you’re interested in going on the trip but don’t have a canoe or kayak, contact the association and an attempt will be made to pair you with someone. RSVP to Julia McLeod at 549-3836 or Julia@dlwa.org.

Davis Stream is one of the primary feeder of Damariscotta Lake. It is wide near its mouth on the lake and meanders through floodplain forest. The association owns a preserve and maintains a self-guided nature trail along the stream bank.

Founded in 1966, the Damariscotta Lake Watershed Association is committed to enhancing the quality of life in and around Damariscotta Lake, assuring enjoyment for all of its natural and human residents. Learn more at www.dlwa.org.
