Hawk Migration Watch

September 11 | Hacker’s Hill Preserve, Casco
Dick Anderson, former Director of the Maine Audubon, brings his enthusiasm for the southern hawk migration to Hacker’s Hill. The ideal conditions for migrating hawks are a northwest breeze with clear skies. Bring your comfy chair, binoculars, water and snacks. In the past, many species of hawks have been observed along with bald eagles and osprey. Please park in the “Event Parking” area to the right of the summit. Easy


Recreation

Trek for the Trails

September |  Shawnee Peak Ski Area, Bridgton  
Run, walk, hike, bike, skip or drive- all on your own time and to support the trails you love! The Trek is LELT’s biggest fundraising event of the year. You’ll have all of September to complete your Trek. All Trekkers are encouraged to document their Trek with a selfie or video, as well as raise money from friends and family to support local trails & conservation.

Feeling competitive? Try your hand at the Pleasant Mountain Trail run!

All proceeds from the Trek support our conservation work in the Lake Region. FMI, click here.
