Pemaquid Watershed Association and Damariscotta River Association will conduct a work day at Crooked Farm Preserve in Bristol on Saturday, Sept. 30. Trail crew members are needed to improve sections of the preserve’s three-mile trail system. The funding for this event has been provided by a Community Trails Grant Program from Keep America Beautiful. PWA is the only Keep America Beautiful affiliate in Maine and was awarded the grant money to purchase materials for this community trail-work day.
The trail work day at the preserve will begin at 8:30 a.m. Lunch will be provided. Volunteers can come for any time they are available to help and are encouraged to bring a friend along. PWA and DRA co-manage this beautiful preserve and this will be the third year of partnership in making the trails better at Crooked Farm Preserve. This partnership ensures that the work parties are always fun and efficient. In order to have the right amount of food, a RSVP is requested to PWA at 563-2196 or by email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Crooked Farm Preserve is located on Old County Road off of Route 130. After turning at the Bristol Area Library, the parking lot is 0.8 miles on the left. The Carpenter’s Boat Shop is just beyond the lot. There will be help from some Carpenter’s Boat Shop apprentices as well. People should park along the road when the parking lot is filled.
Damariscotta River Association and Pemaquid Watershed Association both are member-supported, volunteer-driven nonprofit land trusts.
