Conserving the McLellan-Poor Preserve

Jun 01, 2018
Coastal Mountains Land Trust will conduct a walk through the McLellan-Poor Preserve June 16.

Camden — Ever wonder what it takes to conserve and manage preserves and trails? Coastal Mountains Land Trust will hold a Hike-the-Guide outing at 9 a.m. on June 16 for a walk on the McLellan-Poor Preserve to learn about the projects and conservation considerations for protecting and maintaining the preserves. Volunteer leader Elisabeth Wolfe will share stories from some of the largest projects on the preserve, including launching a large-scale Japanese knotweed management project (without chemicals), establishing new trail easements beside the preserve, and installing a 36-foot, 500-pound aluminum bridge across Ramsey Brook thanks to a number of volunteer groups.

The hike is open to all ages and abilities. Plan to meet at the Route 1 entrance of McLellan-Poor Preserve for a two-hour hike. Parking is limited, so car pool if possible. Email info@coastalmountains.org to register for this free event.
