Time: 2:30 PM
Location: Great Cranberry Marsh - at the end of Georgetown Drive, 3.2 miles from Main St. Biddeford
As part of National Trails Day, Saco Valley Land Trust will host a guided walk along the Great Cranberry Marsh in Biddeford at 2:30 p.m., June 7th. The walk will start at the end of Georgetown Drive, 3.2 miles from Main St. Biddeford. The group will be guided through "Cranberry Marsh North," a 170 acre conserved parcel, by licensed forester Jeff Williams and members of the SVLT board.
This will be the first public visit to the York County Soil and Water Conservation District nominated Black Tupelo tree, recognized as the county's largest of its species in this year's competition . The woodland and marsh habitat will provide opportunity to view native flowering plants and resident wildlife, not to mention a picturesque network of rock walls.This area is part of the state- designated Biddeford-Kennebunkport Vernal Pool Complex. The (50 acre) adjacent Great Cranberry Marsh parcel was donated to the Trust by the City of Biddeford several years ago.
The trails are easy to moderate terrain, and appropriate footwear is recommended. More details can be found on the Saco Valley Land Trust Facebook page, www.facebook.com/sacovalleylandtrust .
