Join the Georges River Land Trust on Tuesday, Aug. 9 from 7 to 8 p.m. at the new Vose Library in Union to learn about ways young people can be encouraged to be naturalists. This event is free and open to the public. Please call the GRLT office at 594-5166 for further information.

Annette Naegel, GRLT’s Conservation Program Manager, and Peter Duffey, a Union resident and GRLT volunteer, will talk about the importance of having wild places in one’s life, and the opportunities for young people to learn about the natural environment. The duo will discuss the ways in which Georges River Land Trust engages youth through outdoor experiences and programs, and invite youth to become involved.

This program is part of the GRLT’s Walks & Talks series offered throughout the year to introduce area residents to the vast natural resources in the St. George River watershed. Upcoming events include the Annual Celebration and Business Meeting on Sunday, Aug. 21 at the Appleton Preserve with a presentation by Trout Unlimited, and a talk on the natural history of the Weskeag on Saturday, Sept. 10.
