Time: 9:00 a.m.

Where: Covill & Hood Property

Leader(s): Sippican Lands Trust

SLT is hosting a Volunteer Work Party on Sunday, January 17th at 9:00 am at our Covill & Hood Property to clear trails. This property is very interesting and most people don’t really know this trail exists with the Sippican Lands Trust. We just ask that you bring your own work gloves and hedge trimmers/clippers/loppers if you have them and, of course, a mask. If you are interested in volunteering with us, please email to register.
UPCOMING WEATHER: If the snow is really deep or conditions not workable for a trail clearing project, we will reschedule the event until after the holidays.


Winter Owl Prowl

Title: Winter Owl Prowl

Date: Saturday, January 23, 2021

Time: 4:00 p.m.

Where: Hagemann Woods and Washburn Park

Leader(s): Sippican Lands Trust

SLT is excited to host another owl prowl this year. Owls of all species are such an interesting bird because we rarely get to see them. In this walk, SLT will lead you through Hagemann Woods in hopes of hearing Marion’s more common owl species including great horned owl and barred owl and then driving over to Washburn Park after sunset (but before last light) to listen for screech owl. Other sunset and night-dwelling creatures may be afoot as well so we will keep our eyes (and ears) focused!

Space is limited due to COVID so please email us at to save yourself a spot!
