Knox-Lincoln Soil & Water Conservation District will offer a Forestry and Foliage Walk and Talk Oct. 8 from 10 a.m. to noon at Merryspring Nature Center, 30 Conway Road, Camden.

Alyssa Gregory, forester with the Maine Forest Service, will identify the various tree species; Joseph Roy, wildlife biologist with the Dept. of Inland Fisheries & Wildlife, will educate participants on best practices to create a healthy habitat; and Louisa Crane, MCC Americorps volunteer, will share her experience working with invasive plant species on the property.

Arrive a few minutes early so the group can cover as much material as possible in two hours. Rebecca Jacobs, program manager at KLSWCD, and Brett Willard, program director at Merryspring Nature Center, will be on hand to discuss upcoming programs and answer any questions.

The group will follow the Maine CDC regarding mask requirements. Space is limited; registration for this free event is greatly appreciated. Register at or call 596-2040. For more information, call 596-2040 or email
