Wednesday Bird Walks

Spring/Summer 2023

The Stanton Bird Club is pleased to continue our Guided Bird Walks in the Lewiston / Auburn area. All walks are free and open to everyone, beginning naturalist to advanced birder. Walks are led by Stan & Joan DeOrsey and Gordon Smith, who identify and comment on birds seen and heard.
Anyone interested in walking, seeing new places, fresh air, and nature is welcomed. Walks are held in a variety of interesting and diverse local habitats, plus some areas less often visited.
