BUCKFIELD – The Western Maine Chapter of the Small Woodland Owners Association of Maine will gather at 9 a.m. Saturday, June 21, for a tour of the new Maine Dowel Co., which has started up on the site of the former Sebago Woodcrafters on Route 117 near Buckfield village.

Barry Belanger will give a tour of the facility and discuss his perspective of the current dowel business.

Following the mill tour, the session will move to the 142-acre Cornwall Preserve on Paris Hill for a walk of some of the trails. The land, donated to the town of Paris in 1982 by Alice B. Cornwall, sits just below the Paris Hill Country Club.
