National Trails Day – Celebrating Land Stewards!
June 2 @ 10:00 am - 11:30 amFree
ALT protects roughly 5,000 acres of forest and farmland and over ten miles of Androscoggin Riverfront, and we couldn’t do it without the dedicated work of our volunteer stewards! On National Trails Day, we would like to show our appreciation to the volunteer stewards who, over the years, have helped ALT maintain its high standard in land protection. We’ll enjoy breakfast at the outdoor classroom at Sherwood Forest Conservation Area, and we’ll also celebrating the recent installation of new signage on this trail system – scheduled to be completed in Spring 2018.
We welcome those interested in learning about our stewardship program as well. You can learn about the stewardship program, what ALT has been busy working on over the past year, and hopefully hear stories about experiences land stewards have had at the properties they help protect.
We will meet at the 19th street entrance where the kiosk is located (behind Sherwood Elementary School in New Auburn) at 10 AM and take a nice hike through the forest (under half a mile) to the outdoor classroom near a pond where we will have breakfast, and enjoy the beautiful scenery.
Directions: Follow South Main Street to New Auburn to the intersection with Cook Street. Take a right onto Cook Street and follow until the intersection with 19th Street. Take a left onto 19th Street and follow until it dead-ends. Park on the side of 19th Street and the trailhead will be on your left.
