Coastal Mountains Land Trust invites the public to participate in the 12th annual free blueberry pick held Sunday, Aug. 3, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

The Land Trust will open a portion of the 20-acre organic blueberry farm as a thank you to the community that supports and enjoys the preserve. Staff and volunteers will be on hand to welcome and orient people to areas open for picking.

Participants should bring their own containers and be prepared for a moderate walk up the hill to the picking fields. Raking is not permitted and please leave dogs at home. Visitors are reminded that there is no parking or access to the preserve from South Street.

Beech Nut, the historic stone hut on the summit, will be open to the public during the free pick. Guests will have the opportunity to learn about the history and management of the hut and the Preserve from Land Trust volunteer docents.
