Audubon seeks volunteers for marsh tours

SCARBOROUGH — Maine Audubon Society's Scarborough Marsh Center is calling on nature lovers for help. The center needs volunteers May 1 through June 18 to lead nature walks through the marsh.

The 3,100-acre estuary is the largest salt-water marsh in the state and is an important breeding and nesting ground for birds, fish and many other species.

Training in marsh ecology and group management for new volunteers begins on May 4, and concludes with sample nature walks on May 5 and 6. Trainings run from 9:30 a.m. to noon. A plant identification seminar will be held on May 13 at 3:30 p.m. Special arrangements can be made for those unable to make the trainings. No prior experience is necessary, however the center is seeking adult volunteers for the tours.

For more information or to sign up, contact Linda Woodard at lwoodard@maineaudubon.org or 415-8331.
