Mid-Coast Audubon will host a potluck lunch Saturday, March 13 from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the UMaine Cooperative Extension office at 377 Manktown Road in Waldoboro, across from Medomak Valley High School.

The Spring Ice-Breaker Party is an opportunity to share bird and nature stories, as well as a favorite dish. There will be an ongoing slideshow of Don Reimer’s bird photos to help attendees hone identification skills. There will be tips on bird feeding and information on attracting feathered friends to a yard. At 1 p.m. there will be a rousing game of Bird Jeopardy.

Families are invited, and children can assemble and/or paint a birdhouse to take home. There will be free birdhouses available to the first 20 children, one per family. Soon it will be spring and birds will be looking for places to nest, and nesting cavities are often in short supply.

Mid-Coast Audubon is an all-volunteer group whose mission is to promote long-term, responsible use of natural resources through an informed membership, education and community awareness. MCAS offers free monthly birding trips and educational programs. It maintains four public preserves. Every third Thursday of the month, MCAS sponsors an evening program at the Camden Public Library. The program in March will be about wind power and its effects on birds.
