Despite less than ideal conditions, everyone had fun trying their snowshoe skills around the Hurricane Valley Farm with the Falmouth Land Trust. We had approximately 25 community members come out to learn about the history of the farm, the history of snowshoe technology (4,000-6,000 years old) and the habits that allow Maine’s wildlife to successful survive the winters. We were thrilled to have great turnout to enjoy the trails and hot chocolate on the farm with members of our community.
The Falmouth Land Trust looks forward to hosting many more events this year where we can introduce the community to the conserved properties in Falmouth. Not everyone is aware of the extensive trail system and resources we have which allow for local recreation in all seasons right here in Falmouth. We have amazing land resources and everyone can benefit from getting out and enjoying nature.
Attached is a photo of Erin Bucci, FLT intern, discussing brumation, which is a lot like hibernation, and leading our tour at the Farm. Future events will be posted on the Falmouth Land Trust Facebook page and in The Forecaster Community Calendar. We invite people to join the FLT events mailing list by sending your contact information to firstname.lastname@example.org.
