Bangor Land Trust is doing our part to help our community stay safe and healthy amidst COVID-19. Physical distancing is crucial to flattening the transmission curve. All in-person programs will be canceled throughout the spring, but our Preserves are open and are a great place to get fresh air and enjoy the pleasure of spring while still practicing distancing. This website has downloadable map. We can use the internet to keep in touch and share the unfolding of spring. Please take photos and send them to us at firstname.lastname@example.org or post them to our Facebook page.

TRAIL GUIDELINES FOR SAFETY DURING COVID-19 THREAT
We ask that trail runners yield to walkers, and bikers yield to those on foot. Please stay at least 6 feet from other trail users (other than those in your immediate household) at all times. The Blue Jay Trail on Walden-Parke Preserve will be a one-way counterclockwise loop beginning where the trail divides after the entrance off Tamarack. Signage will be posted soon. We plan to set up one-way loops on our other preserves as well.
We hope that everyone will support this experiment in safe multi-use for BLT trails!
Please save September 13. We are planning to Pedal the Penobscot!. We are working to design a plan that will keep us all healthy! Your suggestions are welcome. Please email us at email@example.com.
Bangor Land Trust is committed to keeping all of our riders and volunteers safe. We are staying informed about the progression of the corona virus epidemic and with state and local guidelines that pertain to physical distancing during this pandemic. Current state and local guidelines indicate that it will be safe to hold this outdoor event on September 13th, with some minor modifications such as no pickup of materials in the Bangor office, and no sitting next to each other in sag wagon vehicles. We will be working with the High Tide Restaurant to make sure the celebratory food and beverages at the end of the ride can be enjoyed safely.
If conditions change by September 13, 2020, so that public health and state and local guidelines indicate that it is not safe to hold this outdoor event, then we will let you know, and you can either ask for a refund, or you can consider the registration fee a tax deductible donation that will provide you with a one- year membership in Bangor Land Trust.
