Georges River Land Trust and Friends of the Weskeag will co-host Wildlife Wonders of the Weskeag, a bird, wildlife and salt marsh habitat walk in the Weskeag Marsh on Thursday, August 15, at 10 a.m., with Maine Department of Inland Fisheries and Wildlife Regional Wildlife Biologist Keel Kemper.

Participants will meet in the Ralph Waldo Tyler Wildlife Management Area parking lot off Buttermilk Lane and walk to the observation platform for birdwatching and to discuss a broad range of current fish and wildlife issues in Maine. Kemper works to maintain and improve wildlife habitat conditions, maximize biological diversity and protect unique natural areas. He works on various wildlife issues from Bangor to Belfast, to Augusta, to Brunswick. Though IF&W biologists are known for their game species management, they also take part in endangered species conservation, have a research branch, manage state wildlife management areas, and monitor state-held conservation easements. Keel will be able to answer Maine wildlife-related questions.

All are welcome. Dress for an easy walk and bring bug spray. For more information, email newviv@roadrunner.com, call 691-2120 or visit georgesriver.org.
