Wastewater Treatment Plant Tour! (It's better than it sounds...)

  • Exeter Wastewater Treatment Plant 2 Newfields Rd Exeter, NH, 03833 United States (map)

What's more fun than a trip to our local wastewater plant? At least during duck migration season, these somewhat disgusting pools are actually the place to be! Long known to birders as a "hotspot" for gulls, shorebirds, and many species of waterfowl, treatment plants like the ones in Exeter and Seabrook, New Hampshire, are important stopover points for all sorts of migrants. We'll spend time at each one, practicing our waterfowl identification as we go, and keeping an eye out for the flocks of Snow Buntings and Horned Larks that like the grassy verges between the pools. Come join us for a fun morning excursion to this unlikely manmade habitat!

We'll meet in the parking lot of the Exeter Public Works Department at 9:00 a.m. R.S.V.P. to and let us know you're planning to attend.!
