Event Description

National Trails Day is Saturday June 3rd. Join MOAC for some trail maintenance and give back to the trails we love.  This year we will be working with the folks from The Loon Echo Land Trust at the new Pismire Mountain Preserve in Raymond.   This is one of the newest preserves in the state having been established just last year.  There is already 3+ miles of hiking and mountain biking trails, with more to be cut in the near future.  From the top of Pismire Bluff you can see 7 different lakes in the Sebago Lakes region. And since it faces west, the sunsets are awesome.  On Saturday, our initial focus will be the usual spring clearing of the trails - clipping, brushing, clearing blowdowns and cleaning waterbars.  MOAC will provide the trail tools.  No trail maintenance experience required.  All you need are work gloves, sturdy footwear, insect and tick repellent, elbow grease, and enthusiasm.  Don't forget your lunch and water.  

Afterwards, all volunteers are welcome to our house for an Apres-TrailMaintenance happy hour.  BYOB.  I'll fire up the BBQ if you want to bring something to grill.  If the weather cooperates, we'll have a small bonfire in the backyard fire pit.  And then we'll kick back, pat each other on the back, and tell ourselves what a good job we did today. 

Don't hesitate to shoot me an email or give a call if you have questions.  Come for the whole day, half a day, or a few hours.  But mark your calendar for the first Saturday in June, and help celebrate National Trails Day.
