Please be advised that Maine Search and Rescue Dogs (MESARD) will be at Crystal Spring Farm for a training on Saturday, March 25 (as well as along Allagash Drive on Brunswick Landing).
This is a training for the dogs and their handlers (they are not engaged in an actual search for a lost person). Please note that these dogs have special permission to be off-leash at CSF for training purposes only.
It is not a public event. While the public is still welcome to use the trails at Crystal Spring Farm, please be advised that the dogs will be present, and you should respectfully give them space to do their work.
If you would like to read more about a previous training held at Crysal Spring Farm, please check out Hiding in the Woods at Crystal Spring Farm.
Maine Search and Rescue Dogs is a volunteer K9 Search and Rescue group in Maine that supports search missions conducted by the Maine Warden Service, State Police, and other law enforcement agencies across Maine. A MESARD team consists of a K9 handler and a search dog that have completed extensive training and passed certifications. All MESARD teams comply with the Maine Association for Search and Rescue standards.
