NEW TRAIL LOOP!
On Thursday, October 13 Bangor Land Trust officially opened a new half-mile loop trail branching off the existing trail on Central Penjajawoc Preserve. This will allow you to explore fields, streams, forest, and a view over Penjajawoc Marsh. View map.
This message and the photos below of Central PJJ Preserve, including some taken from the new loop trail, were received October 17 from member, Richard Spinney:
"Yesterday afternoon, I was otherwise occupied so I couldn't join the group for the guided tour of the Central Penjajawoc Preserve. I got there this morning around 8:40 and walked the eastern paths to the Marsh Overlook taking photos along the way. Around 9:10, I heard the call of geese flying over, but I didn't see any. I assumed they may have come from the Marsh and were heading south. Once I got to the stone wall, I was joined by multiple dragonflies. One played hide-and-seek on the trunk of a tree. Another rode on my shoulder for about 20 feet. Upon arriving at the Marsh Overlook, I felt as though I was in Monarch Butterfly Paradise because of all the milkweed. There must be an acre or more of them there. I was pleased to see they were not mowed down. Richard"
