New Nature Trail Open in Bangor 

There’s a new nature trail on the Northeast Penjajawoc Preserve.It’s an interpretive trail, which means as you go along, you’ll find signs telling you a little bit more about the area you’re standing in.”Each station has something about the ecology, the plants, the animals, the inner relationships and so forth,” said Bucky Owen, a member of the Orono Land Trust. Lucy Quimby, president of the Bangor Land Trust says it’s a fun way to enjoy the trail, “There are lots of other signs that guide you in the preserves so that you don’t have to worry about getting home in time for supper. You won’t just get lost in here.”The Bangor Land Trust has been working hard to keep the trail the way nature made it, only adding bog bridging. “So now you walk on these cut logs that are just above the water and when its been raining, you can hear it running below but you manage to stay dry and don’t erode the trail and you can really enjoy it,” described Quimby.A new display map is available for the public to give visitors a guided tour of the trail.The hope is that folks from all over will come and enjoy the beauty the preserve has to offer.”The roots are there, the rocks are there, it’s a great place to really walk and get back in touch with nature,” said Kerrie Tripp, executive director of the Greater Bangor Visitor’s and Convention Bureau.If you’d like more information you can log on to
