BRIDGTON — Join Loon Echo Land Trust for a digital slideshow “tour” of its preserves and trail systems at the LELT office at 5 p.m. Friday, Nov. 22. The wheelchair accessible office is at 8 Depot St., Suite 4.

If you are new to exploring the outdoors, recently moved to the Lake Region or have questions about the trails or uses at LELT’s preserves, this presentation is designed for you.

LELT’s Stewardship and Volunteer Coordinator Jon Evans will be the host and will share some of his many pictures and experiences from these beautiful preserves that are in permanent protection.

LELT’s lands that are open to the public will be featured and include Mayberry Hill and Hacker’s Hill in Casco, Bald Pate Mountain in South Bridgton, Sebago Headwaters in Bridgton, Pleasant Mountain in Denmark, Sylvan Woods in Harrison and Perley Mills Community Forest in Sebago and Denmark. Light refreshments will be served.

Since 1987, LELT has been protecting land in the northern Sebago Lake region for future generations to enjoy. By the use of conservation easements (private agreements with landowners), land donations and land purchases, LELT has preserved more than 5,000 acres.

With the help of volunteers, more than 20 miles of trails are maintained for year-round recreation including hiking, snowshoeing, cross-country skiing, snowmobiling, dog walking and hunting. Each preserve has its own set of use guidelines which can be found at www.lelt.org.

All Loon Echo hikes and slide shows are free; however, donations are always welcome and will qualify the donor for a one-year membership.
