Winter Woods Walk
Canceled due to freezing rain/unsafe road conditions forecasted
Join us for a walk with avid outdoorsman, George Ritz, and Maine Master Naturalist, Tom Adams, on Central Penjajawoc Preserve. Discussion will be determined by what we find! We’ll meet up at Bangor Pet Resort & Spa, 1412 Essex Street - across the road and down the street a bit from the preserve’s parking area (which isn’t plowed in the winter). The Pet Resort is allowing us to use their parking lot as long as we leave room for their customers and don’t block anyone in. Carpool if you can! Bring snowshoes or ice cleats depending on the conditions. Don’t forget binoculars, a hand lens, camera. If you like to learn new things about the outdoors, you won’t want to miss this. RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org or 942-1010.
Saturday, January 20 from 10 to 11:30 a.m.
