The Medomak Valley Land Trust will host a walk along the Goose River at its Peace Corps Preserve on Saturday, March 27 at 10 a.m. This will be a scenic walk appropriate for all ages.

The Peace Corps Preserve was purchased and donated by a group of conservation-minded friends that met while serving together in the Peace Corps. The site is a wooded parcel bordering the Goose River, and it was recently explored by a group of fifth-grade Miller School students who are creating an outdoor learning quest.

The 54-acre Peace Corps Preserve protects a forested parcel of land situated on the eastern bank of the Goose River where it springs from the southern tip of Mill Pond in Waldoboro. MVLT maintains a walking trail through the preserve that courses between beech and hemlock, and down along a stretch of the river. The preserve is open to the public year round for low-impact recreation including hiking, skiing, snowmobiling and snowshoeing. Trail maps can be picked up at the MVLT office and will be available at the walk.

To get to the Peace Corps Preserve, follow 220 South from Waldoboro for 4.7 miles before turning left onto Finntown Road. The trail entrance is located on the right, about a mile from Route 220, and parking can be found along the sides of the road. In the event of rain, call the MVLT office at 832-5570 to check for cancellation. For more information about the event, call the office or e-mail
