The Local Voice in Land Conservation | High Peaks Region Maine
Join our Family & Youth Trail Day
Get the whole family outside and join us on August 19 at 9 a.m. for our Family & Youth Trail Day at the Perham Stream Birding Trail in Madrid.
The group will do some light trail clearing–picking up sticks, moving small blowdowns, raking leaves–and hike this beautiful trail we acquired last fall. This easy outing is also a great time to meet other like-minded families and enjoy the local trails. We can provide some children’s gloves, safety glasses and helmets, small rakes and clippers, and tools for the adults!
Afterward, we’ll do some basic navigation education with the kiddos, and they’ll leave with their very own compass. A well-earned lunch will be provided for everyone.
Please let Brent know if you’ll be joining us so we can get an accurate headcount for lunch. You can also RSVP to the Facebook event for more info and updates.
