Schoodic Spring Birding Adventure (CANCELED due to rain)

April 20 @ 8:00 am - 12:00 pm

Two birders stand at Schoodic Point, facing the open sea, with telescopes as they search for birds on a clear blue sky day. Overlaid in the top right is an image of a bird atop thin branches.

Unfortunately, this event has been canceled due to forecasted rain. Thank you for your interest, and we hope to see you for another event at Schoodic Institute this season.

Come one, come all! Join Schoodic Institute at Acadia National Park on Saturday, April 20, 2024 for a free, self-guided birding adventure along the Schoodic Peninsula. Our meeting spot will be the gatehouse at the entrance to Schoodic Institute (in Winter Harbor, ME). Drop by the gatehouse anytime between 8am and 12pm to enjoy refreshments, check out bird identification guides, binoculars and other equipment, and play some fun games to help introduce new birders to the activity. Then, branch out on your own to explore the peninsula and find some cool spring birds. Games will be played, conversations will be had, and birds will (hopefully) be plentiful!

This event will engage birders of all ages and experience-levels to learn more about the birds of Acadia, and it is free of charge.

Please note: heated and accessible bathrooms will be located at the gatehouse. Parking on the Schoodic Institute campus can be found near Rockefeller Hall and at the North Lot (there will be directional signs to help point you in the right direction. View and download a campus map here). If you have mobility issues, there will be parking spots available near the gatehouse.
