Join Kennebec Land Trust (KLT) staff for a walk at the Parker Pond Headland Preserve. This preserve protects a stunning 142-acre forested peninsula with 5,000 feet of rocky undeveloped shoreline along the clear waters of Parker Pond in Kennebec County.
This event marks the 30th anniversary of the Land for Maine’s Future (LMF) Program. Established by Maine voters in 1987, the LMF Program has conserved more than 600,000 acres of land, including: working farms, forests, and waterfronts; trails for snowmobilers, hikers, bikers, and ATV enthusiasts; access to rivers, ponds, lakes, and the ocean; community parks; town forests; beaches; and mountaintop vistas.
KLT received support from the LMF Program to conserve the Parker Pond Headland Preserve, in collaboration with the Diller and Karp families, and the Parker Pond Association. Join us to celebrate this milestone for Maine.
The walk is free and open to the public, no registration necessary.
