Volunteers Clean-Up Bangor Trails 

A group of volunteers spent the day giving some of Bangor’s nature trails a makeover.The folks from the Maine Conservation Corps want folks in the city to be able to enjoy the wilderness, too.Amy Erickson has the story.”You can be here and you don’t know you’re 5 minutes from the mall. You could be up in the north woods!””It just makes your soul feel good to walk in a beautiful spot.”Lucy Quimby says these trails off the Kittredge Road are some of Bangor’s hidden treasures.As President of the Bangor Land Trust, she wants to make sure they’re in good shape, so folks can actually use them…and appreciate this taste of wilderness right in the city.Right now, the trails are in rough shape, thanks to heavy use and poor drainage patterns.The Bangor Land Trust is looking for more volunteers to help rebuild the trails.If you’re interested, call the office at 942-1010 or send email to [email protected]
