(ROCKLAND)— The Georges River Land Trust (GRLT) recently announced the fifth of 18 special events to be held in 2012 as part of Revelry for the River, a celebration of GRLT’s 25th anniversary.

Daffodils are blooming! Over the past 28 years Elinor Klivans has planted thousands of daffodil bulbs in her Camden garden. She has many varieties and each year she adds more. In a setting resembling a small park or glen, daffodils bloom in beds, among ferns and under shrubbery. Enjoy a spring afternoon among the blossoms, along with ice tea, lemonade, and her famous homemade cookies. Elinor is an award-winning author of several cookbooks including Big Fat Cookies!

GRLT’s Revelry for the River is a year full of diverse activities –stellar star watching, wine tasting, celtic music, and much more – that will showcase the beauty of the St. George River watershed and celebrate a quarter century of conservation success in mid-coast Maine.

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.
