The vernal pool is one of the highlights of Merryspring’s new interpretive trail. Merryspring members and members of the community are invited to the grand opening of the trail on Sunday, Dec. 9 at 1:30 p.m.

Camden — The Interpretive Trail highlights some of Merryspring’s most unique attractions on one, easy-to-follow loop. Coupled with a hand-held interpretive guide, this tour of Merryspring provides both a natural and human history of six special places on the park’s grounds.

With distinctive markers and a simple path, this new trail is a great new resource for new visitors to the park and curious members to learn more about Merryspring’s past and how humans have shaped its landscape.

Guests will meet Sunday, Dec. 9 at 1:30 p.m. in front of the Ross Center for a guided walk along the Interpretive Trail.

Brett Willard, who recently completed his one-year stint as an AmeriCorps Environmental Educator and will become Merryspring’s new program manager in 2013 will lead the tour. The program is free and open to the public.

This is an outdoor program, so comfortable shoes and weather-appropriate clothing are advised. For more information, please contact Merryspring at 236-2239 or
