Woodland Owner Appreciation Day
October 1, 2022, 11-4 pm (rain date October 2nd)
Location: LELT preserve and tree farm, Bridgton, ME
Do you own 10 or more acres in the Greater Sebago Lakes Watershed? (check this map if you aren’t sure!) Join LEA and many partners in celebrating forests in the watershed on Woodland Owner Appreciation Day!
Maine Audubon’s Director of Conservation Sally Stockwell will be leading a Forestry for Maine Birds Walk.
Forests are a precious resource. The Lakes Environmental Association, Portland Water District, and Sebago Clean Waters would like to connect you with resources to help keep your land forested for years to come. We hope you can attend our Woodland Owner Appreciation Day. It is free because we are grateful for you and your forested land.
This fun and educational day will include:
Mingling with other landowners
Gathering for lunch (Good Life Market sandwiches provided)
Walking and talking with foresters, biologists, and conservationists
Enjoying a beer brewed with Sebago Lake water
Hearing landowner testimonials about unique management strategies
Drawings for free raffle prizes!
Expect some of the tried and true walks and talks, like Forestry 101 and Forestry for Maine Birds. You can also expect more learning about what a land trust is and does on the landscape, a visit to a recent harvest, and lots of historical information about the site and Bridgton (plus a tour of the 1790’s farmhouse at the end of the day!).
Registration through Eventbrite is required by September 23rd
