Tanglewood Leadership II campers install bog bridging as their community service project on the town of St. George Conservation Commission footpath leading from the spring to Fort Point. They are (front row, from left) Alice Miller, Solon; Isla Brazier, Bath; Emilie Seavey, Orono; Dakota Condon, Oakland; (back row) Jason Savoie Smith, trip leader, Ayer Mass.; Calum Hamilton, Orono; Karly Robinson, Thomaston; Rich Bouchard, Tanglewood facilities coordinator; Ethan McDonough, York; Ezra Hickey, Jefferson; Isabelle Fall, Harpswell; Molly Cyr, trip leader, Farmingdale. The campers are participants in a three-week leadership camp sponsored by the University of Maine Cooperative Extension’s Tanglewood 4-H Camp and Learning Center, which includes an eight-day hike and canoe trip along the length of the St George River watershed. Campers began their trek by foot on Frye Mountain in Montville on July 5 and reached their destination by canoe in Port Clyde on July 13. As part of the leadership training, campers learn skills in communication, outdoor living, ecology, group building, teamwork and get to be counselors for a day with younger campers at the Tanglewood summer camp in Lincolnville.
