People are encouraged to join Midcoast Conservancy and the Wiscasset, Waterville & Farmington Railway on Friday, April 19 from 9:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. for a day of service and fun.
Participants will spruce up the Trout Brook Preserve in Alna, take a Wiscasset, Waterville & Farmington Railway train ride through the woods, then hike at Trout Brook.
In the morning, those who want to give back a little extra in the spirit of Earth Day will be picking up trash and freshening up the trail and surrounding trailhead from 9:30-11:30 a.m.
At noon, the Wiscasset, Waterville & Farmington Railway steam locomotive train will take people from Sheepscot Station through the woods, over the newly finished trestle bridge, and back to Trout Brook.
Those interested in hiking will take to the trails for a 2.5-mile hike on easy to moderate terrain. Anyone wanting to do just the hike can meet the group at the trailhead at 12:30 p.m.
Attendees are encouraged to bring a bag lunch and water if planning to participate in the full day’s schedule.
