Event Type

Join Dr. Loraine Washburn, botanist and conservation biologist, for a guided walk of Maquiot Bay Conservation Land. Loraine’s walk will invite participants to see our forests, fields and marshes not only as natural habitats for local biodiversity, but also as players in the solution to global climate change. We will explore natural places in terms of the species that live there, and also as dynamic, breathing systems. Our focus will in part be on carbon: what it is, where it comes from, how plants and animals use it, and what difference this makes to the whole global change story. This walk is appropriate for children and adults and will have hands-on opportunities to know some plants as well as how they work

Maquoit Bay Conservation Land is a 124-acre preserve on Maquoit Bay that is owned by the Town of Brunswick and is permanently protected through a conservation easement held by the Brunswick-Topsham Land Trust. The property is predominantly woodland, but includes some salt marsh and clam flats which provide excellent protection to the resources of Maquoit Bay—an area of statewide ecological significance.

The walk should take 1 hour. We suggest wearing sturdy shoes and bringing water, sunscreen and a hat. This event is free but we encourage registration! 

The BTLT Woods Walks Series seeks to introduce the community to the ecological significance of our properties, land conservation and stewardship, property history and/or exploration of the ecosystems and critters present on various properties. These guided walks are led by knowledgeable community volunteers and the Land Trust’s incredible Stewardship Team!
