Don Reimer Presents “Weskeag Marsh” January 18
Photographer and columnist Don Reimer will offer a colorful photographic tour of Weskeag Marsh’s varied habitats and rich assortment of bird and animal life at the Camden Public Library on Thursday, January 18, at 7:00 pm. The slide show is co-hosted by the Library and the Midcoast Audubon Society. Don Reimer is a noted bird photographer and Audubon board member as well as an avid birder.
After a decade of volunteering with the annual International Shorebird Surveys, Reimer will describe the Weskeag’s vital role in seasonal shorebird migration and the fostering conservation work of Georges River Land Trust’s Bridging Two Rivers project. The goal of the Bridging Two Rivers project is to protect a ‘land bridge’ between the St. George and Weskeag Rivers. This area supports most of the last remaining open hay fields on the St. George peninsula and provides critical habitat and a ‘flyway’ for migrating birds that feed and rest along the two rivers. Hundreds of acres have already been preserved, including the state’s R. Waldo Tyler Wildlife Management Area.
