Saturday, May 4 at 9:00 am - 12:00 pm

at Sewall Woods Preserve in Bath

Led by Nancy Sferra, Director of Stewardship and Ecological Management for The Nature Conservancy, this is a great learning opportunity for land owners, volunteers, or anyone looking to increase their know-how to identify and maintain property boundary lines.

Boundary maintenance is an essential part of the stewardship work for land trust properties. Reading deeds, surveys, and features on the landscape are all essential skills for finding obscure boundary lines in the field. During this stewardship skills workshop, participants will look at boundary features, review legal documents and discuss how to maintain a boundary line. Sewall Woods, a mixed species forest with shore frontage along Whiskeag Creek, will serve as an excellent example to learn and practice new skills.

This event is free. Registration is required due to the limited class size. Please sign-up by calling KELT at 207-442-8400 or using the Google form below.
