Join Nestlé, SCA, and Maine Audubon to #CleanUp Gilsland Farm!
Situated along the Presumpscot River estuary just five minutes from Portland, Gilsland Farm features a modern environmental education center and a 65-acre sanctuary with more than two miles of trails winding along a pond and through forest, meadow, orchard, and salt marsh. Gilsland Farm is an invaluable resource for wildlife and provides nesting habitat for migrating warblers, thrushes, and finches, while the adjacent tidal flats support large flocks of feeding shorebirds. Nestlé employee volunteers will work to cleanup the waterway, shoreline, and beaches.
WHEN: Saturday, June 8th, 10:00 am – 12:00 pm.
WHERE: Gilsland Farm, 20 Gilsland Farm Road, Falmouth, ME 04105. Parking is available on site.
WHAT: Volunteers will cleanup litter along the shoreline at Gilsland Farm.
BRING WITH YOU: Please wear long pants, closed-toe shoes, and clothes that you don’t mind getting dirty. The event will take place along the shore in tidal areas, so knee-high boots are reccommended. The event will take place rain or shine!
PROVIDED: SCA will provide breakfast and reusable water bottles. Gloves and all project supplies will also be provided.
