How can you help local birds and birding?
Support the most popular local birding area by becoming a member of Viles Arboretum. The Arboretum also hosts our presentations and meetings free of charge. We don’t usually raise money, but club members, with help from Merrymeeting Audubon, recently raised over $2,300 to help the Arboretum rebuild it’s wetland boardwalk.
Support the protection of local bird habitat by becoming a member of the Kennebec Land Trust. KLT has permanently conserved over 5,000 acres at more than 60 properties in our local towns and maintains over 40 miles of trails.
Keep your cats inside, or if you can’t do that, put a bell on their collar. Outside cats kill a lot of birds.
