We are making tentative plans for opening the marsh. Starting on July 1 we may be able to expand our service offerings.   This schedule could change at any point due to Covid 19 current circumstances.  We will update this information as we go along.

Experience the wildlife and plants of Scarborough Marsh as you paddle the Dunstan River. Paddling through the marsh, you will be exposed to its many inhabitants, from the snowy egret catching fish along the edge of the river to the mummichogs swimming in the water. A trained naturalist will show you the numerous marsh plants and even give you a taste of an edible one.

This tour is suitable for both novice and experienced paddlers. 

No reservations are needed.  If you have questions, you can e-mail smac@maineaudubon.org or call 207-883-5100.
