BIRDING NEWTOWNE’S FIELDS, FORESTS AND BAYS

October 22 @ 8:00 am - 12:00 pm

Leader: David Moulton

A peninsula defined by Breton Bay, the Potomac River and St. Clements Bay, this 776-acre property of woodlands, wetlands and agricultural fields offers a wide variety of birding habitats. Newtowne was the first settlement in the Maryland province after St. Mary’s City. Owned for nearly 3 centuries by the Jesuits, the land was reclaimed as a state park in 2009 to protect it from development. Take Rte. 5 West from Leonardtown. Turn left (south) on Rte. 243 (Newtowne Neck Road) go about 4 miles to a small parking lot on the left just after entering the park. Church address: 21370 Newtowne Neck Road, Leonardtown, MD 20650. RSVP to David Moulton at 240-278-4473 or moulton.davidh@gmail.com.
