Woods and Waters So Close to Home: Exploring the Trails in Your Own Backyard
with the Cape Elizabeth Land Trust
Wednesday, June 23
6:30 – 7:30 p.m.
via Zoom
We don’t need to tell you that summer in Maine is amazing! But did you know just how many incredible spots there are where you can enjoy the natural beauty of Maine right here in our own backyard? Join us for a brief narrated tour of Cape’s premiere outdoor areas, co-hosted by the Cape Elizabeth Land Trust. During this hour, CELT will introduce you to both popular preserves and hidden gems, as well as some of the basics of trail etiquette and how you can get involved with the work of preserving and maintaining Cape’s natural spaces. Keep your hiking shoes handy, because after this presentation, you’ll want to hit the trails and discover just how special your backyard really is!

The Cape Elizabeth Land Trust permanently conserves and provides stewardship for lands cherished by our community – from shore lands to marshes, from farmlands to woodlands – for the education, use and enjoyment of this and future generations.

Since 1985, CELT has preserved 842 acres of land on 31 separate parcels. These lands, some donated and some purchased, represent the varied ecology of our seaside town, including mature forest; open fields; sandy beaches; marshlands, ponds and streams; and working farmland. The majority of these properties are managed by CELT staff and volunteers for casual, non-motorized use by the general public. Several of these parcels are still privately owned, though CELT has negotiated binding conservation agreements (easements) to ensure these properties remain primarily undeveloped.
