Coastal Rivers Conservation Trust

Guided hike at Crooked Farm Preserve Sept. 3

Wed, 09/01/2021 - 12:15pm

From 3 to 5 p.m. on Friday, Sept. 3, Coastal Rivers Conservation Trust naturalist Sarah Gladu will lead a hike along the trails of Crooked Farm Preserve in Bristol.

Crooked Farm Preserve features nearly 130 acres of forest, wetlands, and open fields, including over a mile of frontage along the Pemaquid River. Its gravel streambeds are spawning habitat for game fish, and its wetlands provide edge habitat favored by moose, white-tailed deer, mink, raccoon, fisher, fox, and otter.

This abundance of wildlife makes it a great spot to look for tracks and signs. The group will stop at several locations along the trail to examine some of the smallest plants and animals. Hand-lenses will be provided, or participants may bring their own.

This program is free of charge, thanks to member support. Registration is required at Binoculars and protection against ticks are recommended.
