SHARE:

Time: Sat, Apr 27, 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

Location: Whitefield

Description:

Do you love getting outside? Are you interested in trail work? Becoming a Trail Steward is a great way to help make sure that Midcoast Conservancy trails stay in tip-top shape! It’s also a rewarding way to give back that can be completed entirely on your own time – we ask for reports from our trail stewards just four times per year.

If you think you might want to become a Trail Steward, you can find out more about what’s involved by attending our Trail Steward Info Session. If you are already a Trail Steward and would like to have a refresher or share your experience, you’re welcome to join us!

We will meet at the Whitefield Salmon Preserve trail head for a beautiful loop hike. Along the way, Land Steward Irene Syphers Flynn will discuss how to do basic trail maintenance, how to look for issues on the trail, and what to report back to Midcoast Conservancy. You’ll even be able to sign up for a trail section if you decide you’re interested!

Please wear sturdy shoes for hiking and bring water. We’ll provide snacks! RSVP requested – email irene@midcoastconservancy.org or call 389-5158.
