PALMYRA – Sebasticook Regional Land Trust will host a paddling trip at Madawaska Bog from 9 to noon on Sunday, July 15.
Bring your boat (canoes and kayaks welcome), binoculars, water and sunscreen, and join Sebasticook Regional Land Trust for a great morning of exploration and sunshine. Land Trust naturalists Brandon Kulik and Peter Abello will guide the trip. Madawaska Bog, managed by the Maine Department of Inland Fisheries and Wildlife, provides high-quality wading bird and waterfowl habitat. A number of rare bird species have been documented here, including American coot, bald eagle, black tern and least bittern.
Sebasticook Regional Land Trust works with willing landowners to conserve the lands they love and the resources Central Maine relies upon – clean water, productive farms that provide local food and jobs, well-managed working forests, and places to hunt, fish and recreate with our children. The Trust’s award-winning, all-ages educational program aims to increase understanding and appreciation for the natural world. A focus this summer is exploring the watershed’s many ponds and bogs.
Participants must provide their own boat and personal flotation device (PFD). Pre-registration by 4 PM Friday, July 13 is required. To register and get directions to the launch site, please contact Sebasticook Regional Land Trust at 948-3766 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
