Waldoboro — Medomak Valley Land Trust will host a spring wildflower walk at the Peace Corps Preserve Thursday, June 5, at 10 a.m.

Lady Slippers, Trillium, Indian Cucumber Root, and dozens of other spring wildflowers should be in full display. MVLT’s Peace Corps preserve trail follows the Goose River, and winds its way through hemlock and spruce trees interspersed with one of the area’s best wildflower displays.

Joan Ray, MVLT’s land protection and stewardship specialist and a Maine Master Naturalist, will lead this hike to look at the many spring-blooming flowers of Midcoast Maine.

To get to the Peace Corps Preserve, follow Route 220 South from Waldoboro for 4.7 miles before turning left onto Finntown Road. The trail entrance is located on the right, 0.9 miles from Route 220, and parking can be found along the sides of the road.

For additional information about this event, volunteer opportunities, or MVLT’s services to landowners, please contact the land trust’s Waldoboro office at 832-5570 or email volmvlt@midcoast.com.
