RAYMOND — Volunteers for Loon Echo Land Trust gathered on Sept. 24 at the Raymond Community Forest for the preserve’s inaugural volunteer trail work day.

Nineteen volunteers and staff contributed their time and efforts to work on the lower multi-use trail west of Conesca Road.

“The group accomplished more work than I had hoped for in less time than I budgeted,” said Dave Dowler, Loon Echo volunteer and event coordinator. “The weather was perfect and several of the volunteers were working with LELT for the first time.”

A second volunteer trail work day is being planned for mid- to late October to finalize the trails for their opening next month.

Loon Echo Land Trust’s next event is Life On A Rock at 1:30 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 15, at Bald Pate Mountain Preserve in Bridgton with Maine master naturalist Leigh Hayes.
