Motorcycle ride for the river
See the St. George River watershed from a different point of view. Join Georges River Land Trust for a motorcycle ride Sept. 15 at 10 a.m. (rain or shine) to enjoy the colors and fresh fall air. Topping off the day will be a barbecue at an 1784 farmhouse in Warren. Tickets to the event benefit the Georges River Land Trust and are $50 per bike for land trust members and $55 per bike for non-members (passengers are free). Tickets must be purchased in advance at www.grlt.org/revelryevents.html or by calling 594-5166.
Alvin Chase, board president and owner of Eastern Tire Inc. in Rockland, will lead riders on a loop tour encompassing about 100 country miles.
“Motorcycle enthusiasts love these benefit rides,” said Chase. “Nothing could be better than exploring on our bikes and raising much needed money to conserve this beautiful area.”
The tour will cover territory between Port Clyde and the headwaters of the St. George River at Lake St. George in Liberty, and pass properties protected by the land trust such as the Paulsen Farm and Riverview Hayfields Preserve in South Thomaston. Riders will see the lakes, river, blueberry fields and farms throughout the watershed, as well as the coastline on the St. George peninsula.
This event is part of Revelry for the River, a celebration of 25 years of conservation. For more information on the Georges River Land Trust, its programs and upcoming events visit www.grlt.org, email email@example.com or call 594-5166.
