Calling all tree lovers!

Join us on Saturday, October 12 for a tree ID walk through a portion of the Northeast Penjajawoc Preserve. This walk will be led by Dr. Steve Sader, a tree expert with the School of Forest Resources at the University of Maine. The walk will cover a little more than a mile on a loop trail through the preserve and should take about an hour and a half. A handout sheet listing most of the trees, shrubs, and common ground plants found in Maine will be provided. Those who like to keep track should bring a clipboard and pencil. Expect to see about 30 different plant species during the walk. To aid in some of the identifications, binoculars will be provided. Good walking/hiking shoes are recommended as parts of the trail route contain exposed roots and rocks. The walk starts at 10:00 am from the BLT kiosk on Kittredge Rd. The kiosk and parking area is about one mile from the Stillwater, Kittredge Rd intersection.
