Coastal Rivers Conservation Trust naturalist Sarah Gladu will lead a hike at Keyes Woods Preserve in Bristol from 9 to 11 a.m. on Saturday, March 12.
Coastal Rivers’ newest trail winds through Keyes Woods Preserve in Bristol. This beautiful wooded property extends east to the Pemaquid River from Poor Farm Road, with over 1,900 feet of shoreline and a free-flowing tributary stream. The outflow of this stream, at a quiet bend in the river, is a hotspot for waterfowl viewing.
Crisscrossed with historical stone walls, the preserve offers a number of interesting features including old stone foundations and glacial erratics. Wildlife such as deer, porcupine, and ruffed grouse are abundant.
This program is free of charge, thanks to member support. Registration is required at coastalrivers.org/events.
