The September Get Out! Nature Walk will feature chestnut trees and fungi, with naturalist Karen Herold.
Get Out! Nature Walks are volunteer-led trips with trained master naturalists and other skilled volunteer leaders. Join us for a well-planned, no cost, guided adventure. Occurring once-per-month on Wednesdays, these walks are always free, and happen rain, snow, or shine. Check the schedule on our website for specifics or updates.
Our program is jointly offered by both the Chebeague and Cumberland Land Trust and the Royal River Conservation Trust. Our nature walks are at preserves in the Towns of Chebeague Island, Cumberland, Yarmouth, North Yarmouth, Pownal, New Gloucester, Durham, or anywhere else we decide to roam.
Be mindful of the weather, and dress accordingly. Bring appropriate gear, snacks and a thermos or water bottle. Check our website for any updates or changes. Nature walks typically involve getting on our knees with a hand lens, or standing still for ten minutes craning up at a treetop. Trips are great for kids, but inappropriate for folks under age 6. Our curriculum is targeted at adults and engaged youth. Because the purpose is nature observation, we ask that dogs do not join us.
The trips are volunteer led. Staff might be in the office or reachable with information if you are running late or need better driving directions, but our primary liaison between volunteer leaders and trip members is via email.
