Trail Walk with the Chamber 2:00 PM to 3:30 PM Crystal Spring Farm Trails - South, 277 Pleasant Hill Road lot , Brunswick

 

SMMC Members, join the Chamber for a trail walk on Friday, November 19th at 2pm at Crystal Spring Farm - South, 277 Pleasant Hill Road, Brunswick. *Rain date is Wednesday, November 24th at 2pm*

This is the first of a new Chamber offering - small group walks on land trust trails. We plan to hold these organized walks 2x/month, for as long as the weather accommodates us. Yes – we know it’s getting colder, and winter is known for its snow, but there’s so much value in taking a walk together…

  • This is about strengthening our community. These trail walks present low Covid-risk ways to connect with fellow members more frequently throughout the month. Community is all about building relationships, and we want to offer you more chances to do just that through the experience of enjoying our shared outdoor spaces together.
  • Are you Zoomed-out? Walking in the woods is revitalizing, physically and mentally, which we need all the time, not just in Covid times. Plus, connecting in real time out in nature is so much better than pixels.
  • We need breaks from our desks. Fresh air, trees, and good conversation is a recipe for new inspiration and ideas to take back to the office.
  • This is the land where we live and work. It’s important that we take time to appreciate it together because it’s our shared place. Doing so gels community. And we want to elevate the work of our local land trusts because these preserved lands and trail networks are a gift to our community.

These walks have been organized with the support and collaboration of the Brunswick Topsham Land Trust (BTLT). BTLT has been conserving and protecting land in the region for over 30 years. They protect 25+ miles of public-use trails and over 3,000 acres of conserved land across 65 properties. A proud host of the Saturday Farmers Market at Crystal Spring Farm, they also have an 80+ plot community garden and offer over 30 events and programs each year. BTLT's work is supported by more than 1,000 community and business members. For more information, check out their website www.btlt.org

Crystal Spring Farm trails are part of the BTLT. Here’s a map of the area we’ll be walking, if you’re not familiar. We’ll be taking East Trail to Blueberry Loop.

These organized walks are open to SMMC members. Spots are limited (6-8) to be mindful of parking availability and to create a small group experience. Please e-mail Claire (claire@midcoastmaine.com) to sign up; she willing be leading the walks.

We hope you’ll join us and please reach out with any questions. Stay tuned for future dates in December!
