    Horse logging at MVLT's Burkett Mill Preserve

    Knox-Lincoln SWCD is joining the Maine Forest Service (MFS) to co-sponsor a series of field tours to highlight woodland stewardship and conservation practices of private landowners. These free tours will be led by Midcoast District Forester Morten Moesswilde and are open to landowners, loggers, foresters and others interested in the stewardship of small woodlands.

    Tours take place rain or shine (barring lightning and blizzards) so please dress for weather and field conditions.

    2019 Tours 

    Thu, Jan 31 from 10am to noon         Wildlife Habitat/Winter Tracking       Hodson Preserve, Camden

    Join us for the first walk of 2019! Kirk Gentalen of Maine Coast Heritage Trust will lead this walk at Coastal Mountains Land Trust's Hodson Preserve on Molyneaux Rd in Camden. If you attended the mushroom ecology walk last fall, you know that Kirk is pretty funny, as well as extremely knowledgeable!

    Winter is a great time to learn about local wildlife. Fresh snow captures tracks, trails, tunnels and other signs of local critters, including coyote, deer, fox, raccoon, weasel, fisher – and even owls! In his inimitable style, Kirk will discuss different habitats and demonstrate how and where to look for and identify signs of our woodland neighbors.

      • Parking! Please meet at the Snow Bowl parking lot on Hosmer Pond Rd in Camden to carpool to Preserve. Pull up near the lodge - we'll be looking for you!
      • Please dress for the weather and trail conditions.
      • Binoculars & cameras welcome.
      • Here is a link to a map of the preserve: Hodson Preserve
    RSVP: Participants are asked to let the District know if they plan to attend so they can be contacted in the event of stormy weather - 596-2040 or julie@knox-lincoln.org.
