Fields Pond Audubon Center has a new trail that creates several longer hiking loop options around the sanctuary, connecting the waterfront and Lake Shore trail to the interior of the property. Dedicated volunteers helped blaze the trail, and the Penobscot Valley Chapter recently held a trail-naming contest to come up with a name. Members were asked to hike the trail for inspiration and submit names.
Fields Pond center manager David Lamon is delighted to announce that the new trail name has been chosen: The Beechwood Trail. Thanks to everyone who helped create the trail, and all those who entered the naming contest.
The person who submitted the winning name (who wishes to remain anonymous) receives a beautiful felted soft sculpture of a chickadee gleaning fluff from cattails, hand-crafted by PVC Vice President Ellen Campbell.
