Yacolucci Woods Birding Walk

Saturday, May 27, 2017 - 3:30 PM to 5:30 PM

Yacolucci Woods

Route 1, Talmadge

Pileated Woodpecker

Downeast Lakes Land Trust is pleased to sponsor the 14th Annual Downeast Spring Birding Festival with a birding walk at Yacolucci Woods. Join DLLT Education and Outreach Manager Colin Brown for an afternoon walk through Yacolucci Woods – a 100 acre parcel that is permanently conserved for wildlife habitat.  An easy walking path passes through several different forest types, allowing for good views of woodpeckers, warblers, wetland species, and many more.  Be sure to bring your binoculars and water.

For festival-goers, this walk serves as an excellent stop that immediately follows the “Burn Road” program, located 15 minutes south along Route 1. Anyone planning on attending the Burn Road walk, followed by the Moosehorn evening program, can fill their afternoon with this great excursion!

Where is Yacolucci Woods?

Yacolucci Woods is located directly along the west side of Route 1, on the Waite/Talmadge town line. If you are headed south from the Burn Road program, Yacolucci Woods is roughly 4 miles south of the intersection of Routes 1 and 6, on the right. We will meet in the parking area along the road, next to the sign.
