Lincoln School First Grade Bird Trip

May 25, 2023 @ 10:00 am - 1:00 pm


Every year First Graders at Lincoln Elementary study birds for two quarters in the spring.  At the end of the year, all the first grade classes take a field trip to Edness Kimball Wilkins State Park to see some of the birds they have been learning about.  Birders and Community Naturalists are needed to guide student groups in spotting and identifying birds.  This is a great opportunity to work with young children and introduce them to the fun of birding.

This year’s First Grade Class from Lincoln Elementary field trip to Edness Kimball Wilkins State Park will be on May 25, 2023.  The itinerary for the field trip includes arriving around 10:20 in the morning, about an hour or so of walking and bird identification, a sack lunch, walking over to the playground area and some continued bird identification as the students walk and play.
The students will arrive about 10:20 a.m. After unloading from the buses, the kids will be ready for a bird identification walk.  It would be a wonderful enriching experience for the students if some experienced birders could guide them and help identify various birds.  Please let me know if any of you could spare a couple morning hours to introduce some potential budding birders to the excitement and wonder of spring at Edness Kimball Wilkins State Park.  You can contact me, Laurie Longtine, at ledgerpluscasper@gmail.com.
