Join the land trust for its very first Trail Monitor Workshop and learn how you can help us keep our trails safe, beautiful, welcoming, and environmentally healthy.

Want to combine your favorite walk with invaluable community service?

Our goal is to have at least one (ideally several) Trail Monitors for every trail, so every trail is walked monthly as well as after warm-season storms.

Trail Monitors serve as our eyes and ears – helping us quickly identify stewardship needs, such as blowdowns, potential safety hazards, erosion problems, and maintenance needs.

At the workshop, you will walk trails at Cathance River Nature Preserve (CRNP) with our stewardship leaders, learning what to look for and how to report it. Come enjoy the renovated and reconfigured trails at CRNP while learning how to transform a beautiful hike into productive ‘field work’!

Please RSVP for this event with the ticket above.

Additional details will be sent to event attendees the week before the workshop.

CRNP is located at the Highland Green Development in Topsham. From Route 201 in Topsham, take Route 196 east (Coastal Connector) to the first set of lights. Turn left at the lights onto Highland Green on Village Drive.

After you have entered Highland Green, stay straight for 1.5 miles.  You will see the golf club on your left.  Stay on Evergreen Circle, the winding main village road of Highland Green, for approximately 1 more mile.

Look for Junco Drive on your left.  The parking area for the Ecology Center is straight ahead, on the left. This parking area is for visitors of the Ecology Center only. If you are visiting CRNP to enjoy the trails, please continue on Evergreen Circle approximately 1/3 of a mile past the Ecology Center to Hiker Parking.
You will drive through an area where construction may be taking place but the road will remain passable. After driving down a slight hill, Hiker Parking will be on your left. Please exit the same way you came in, as construction vehicles enter from the opposite direction and there is a gate that is closed daily.
