At the June 10 session, at 10 a.m. at Twin Brook Recreation Area, speakers Maeve McGowan of the Kennebec Estuary Land Trust and Laura Zitske of Maine Audubon will discuss how landowners can protect the bobolink and other native Maine grassland birds.

The July 8 session will be a tour of three backyards exhibiting sustainable practices. The group will meet at 10 a.m. at Wild Seed Project, 21 Memorial Highway in North Yarmouth. The three yards are within walking distance.

Each session is free and no registration is necessary.
