Next Meeting: Thursday, March 28, 2019 at 7:00PM at the Mattapoisett Free Public Library
From Bad Hotspot to Good Hotspot: Birding at Egypt Lane
Member Carolyn Longworth will give a brief history of Atlas Tack, the Fairhaven superfund site which went from a dumping ground for industrial cyanide and PCBs to a prime bird habitat through cooperative funding by state, local and federal governments.
Carolyn will show photos of some of the birds--common, endangered and just plain surprising-- that have visited. Some are glimpsed on the way to somewhere else and others stay and raise families. If a rare bird is going to show up in Fairhaven, it will probably be at Egypt Lane.
[Note: it is almost the same program Carolyn presented to the Paskamansett group last April with updates on the grebes and other summer 2018 birds]
The Mattapoisett Free Public Library is located at 7 Barstow Street and
is handicapped accessible. The program is free and open to the public.
Meeting Place: Park & Ride, North Street, Mattapoisett unless
otherwise noted. All welcome.Trips generally last two to three hours.
If weather is questionable on a walk day, please call the trip leader.
