Some 36 miles of hiking trails offer myriad opportunities to explore these beautiful preserves, and in celebration of its 25th anniversary last fall, the KLT introduced the “Kennebec Land Trust Hiking Guide.” This attractive new full-color publication features 20 of the trust’s most popular properties and some of its best hiking trails.
“Our growing member base – now over 1,000 individuals – is pretty familiar with our properties, but the public at large is not as aware of what we have here,” said Matt Silverman, conservation assistant with the land trust. “The hiking guide highlights these properties and will help make them more accessible to more people.”
Mainers who work in fields such as agriculture, energy, forestry and fisheries wish for swift actions and policies that will move the state forward in the new year. Source asked five of them to answer the question: What is the one change you would like to see in your field in 2015 that would make Maine a more sustainable place to live?
