Play detective in the forest on a weekend walk…

Families are invited to a special walk at Freeport Conservation Trust’s Calderwood preserve, Sunday, October 23, 2-4 PM.  Walk leader Jay Espy is a Freeport resident with a long career working to preserve Maine's special places, a keen interest in the natural world, and many hours spent in the woods with his kids. Interpretative part of the walk will be targeted at elementary school-aged children through adults.

Jay and walk participants will try to discern the history of the now forested landscape: Did people once live here? How can we tell? Did this place used to look differently? We’ll also share what we know about the trees, plants and animals seen at the preserve. 

Walk involves a 1-mile, flat terrain loop on the inland side of the road and a half mile loop along the shore of Maquoit Bay.

Directions: From the LL Bean retail store follow Bow Street/Flying Point Road towards Brunswick for just over 5 miles.
