The Medomak Valley Land Trust will host a walk at Quarry Hill Farm in Waldoboro on Tuesday, Aug. 17 at 10 a.m. The property, which is owned by the town of Waldoboro, consists of a mix of habitats including upland forest, blueberry fields and other land cultivated for agriculture.

The morning walk will provide a glimpse of the old quarry and an opportunity to explore the fields and forest. The town of Waldoboro donated the easement on Nov. 15, 2007. The easement is approximately 320 acres in size and includes 40 acres of blueberry and other cultivated fields. The primary conservation values are to preserve the open space, forest, agricultural resources and natural habitat for the use and enjoyment of the people of Waldoboro.

To get to Quarry Hill Farm, go one mile up Depot Street from Route 1 and take a right onto Quarry Hill Road. For more information on this hike, or in case of inclement weather, call the land trust at 832-5570.
