Visit the Stover property and take a walk with owner Lee Stover on Saturday, April 10 at 10 a.m.

During the course of the outing participants will learn how the owner balances needs for wood with water and wildlife issues on the property. He will discuss harvesting, regeneration and sustainable forestry. Walking will be mostly on cleared, level trails, with only a few rugged places. The event, sponsored by the Belfast Bay Watershed Coalition, is free and open to the public.

Participants should bring water, lunch, rain gear and boots for this three-hour outing. Meet at the Stover property at 10 a.m. From Belfast drive out High Street (which becomes City Point Road) and bear left onto East Waldo Road. After one mile, where the tarmac turns to dirt, park on the right at the Stover driveway.

The Belfast Bay Watershed Coalition plans regular outings to familiarize the public with the beauty and unusual features of the Belfast Bay’s watershed, as well as neighboring conservation properties. The watershed covers 69,657 acres and is comprised of four smaller watersheds: the Little River, the Passawassawakeag River, the Wescott Stream and the Goose River. It includes all or parts of Brooks, Frankfort, Knox, Morrill, Northport, Searsport, Swanville and Waldo, as well as the City of Belfast.
