PHILLIPS — The first eco tours are scheduled for Aug. 18 at Fox Carlton Pond Sporting Camps, gateway to Maine’s High Peaks Region.
“We are excited to begin offering this journey into our pristine sanctuary. The allure of our uniquely diverse eco system, flora and fauna, is bounded by the natural beauty and tranquility of the Sandy River. Depending upon the season, nature enthusiasts will be exposed to the artistry of Mother Nature and experience the pond’s natural transition of seasons. Enthusiasts will also encounter a glacial erratic megalith,” says Jon Pound of FCPSC
Hosted by Tina Rose, who resides in the High Peaks Region, is noted for her eco-nature photography, artisan sculptures and paintings. Rose will offer a personal insight into Fox Carlton Pond’s dynamic eco system. “Hosting Eco Tours for Fox Carlton Pond is an opportunity to enlighten and confer with ecological devotees,” says Rose.
Due to the fragile habitat, Fox Carlton Pond’s Eco Tours are limited to four persons and all who are interested are encouraged to confirm availability.
Fox Carlton Pond Campground is located off Route 4 in Phillips. The 5-acre pond sits on 63 wooded acres alongside the Sandy River. Noted especially for its fishing, anglers have complete access to Fox’s well-stocked trout pond. Other activities include RVing, mountain biking, ATV trail exploring and hiking.
Rose will be showcasing her eco-nature photography at the Phillips Area Community Center Art Show on Aug. 11.
