Join MCHT Steward & Naturalist, Kirk Gentalen, for a guided Bird Walk at Erickson Fields Preserve, located at 164 West Street in Rockport. From 8:00 to 9:30 a.m., Kirk will lead a group around MCHT’s Teen Ag garden and through the woods, teaching how to identify birds by sight and sounds, and discover what other creatures inhabit the preserve. Over the last 25 years, Kirk has worked as a naturalist in 13 states and has led birding trips as far away as Alaska, California, and Georgia. Locally he has led trips for Mid-coast and National Audubon Societies, Down East and Acadia birding festivals as well as “Thursday morning bird walks” on Vinalhaven Island. Kirk Gentalen is Maine Coast Heritage Trust’s steward/naturalist for Vinalhaven Island where he also edits the “Vinalhaven sightings report” summary blog of natural history sightings from around Vinalhaven.

The walk is free and open to levels of experience. For more information about the walk and other MCHT events, call MCHT’s Aldermere Farm office at 207-236-2739, email, or visit
