Georges River Land Trust is pleased to announce Aleah Sebrey of Union as the winner of the Leki Walking Stick raffle from the Pen Bay Medical Center’s Healthy Living Festival on September 14th. The Land Trust was delighted to participate in the Healthy Living Festival as a way to help promote outdoor activity for young and old and to tout the Georges Highland Path trail system that is in place for all in the midcoast region to enjoy.
“Winning the walking stick made her day,” said Leann Sebrey of Union. Her daughter Aleah won the walking stick donated by Maine Sport Outfitters of Camden, Maine for the Land Trust’s booth at the Healthy Living Festival. Aleah is already an enthusiastic hiker who has favorite trails in Union, Appleton, and the White Islands. Her love of outdoors, and the walking stick itself, inspired several young attendees to join Land Trust volunteer Kit Pfeiffer in exploring trails on the Pen Bay campus.
Young and older hikers alike can explore more than 45 miles of trails from Frye Mountain in Montville to St. George by going to www.georgesriver.org to download printable maps or by picking up guides at the Georges River Land Trust office at 8 North Main St., Rockland (2nd floor above the Free Press). For more information, please visit Georges River’s website or call (207) 594-5166.
Organized in 1987, the Georges River Land Trust works to conserve the ecosystems and traditional heritage of the Georges River watershed region through permanent land protection, stewardship, education and outdoor experiences. The watershed extends from Montville in the north to Port Clyde and Cushing in the south and includes streams, ponds, lakes, wetlands, farms, hills, mountains, blueberry barrens and forest, as well as a rich tidal estuary of salt marsh, clam flats and productive fishing grounds.
