Event Type

Join Dr. Loraine Washburn, botanist and conservation biologist, for a guided walk of Chase Reserve. 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.

Chase Reserve is a 194-acre easement property on Bunganuc Road in Brunswick. Protected in 2011, the property has extensive shore frontage on ecologically significant Maquoit Bay, including valuable intertidal land. Part of the largest unfragmented forest block along the coast in Cumberland County, Chase Reserve’s diverse mix of managed forest, late successional white pine and hemlock stands, and vernal pools make it a great place to see wildlife

The walk should take 1hr. 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!
