The Navy Posts Their Brunswick Landing Properties

Many of you may have seen a host of new “No Trespassing, Federal Property” signs at Brunswick Landing. This includes trails that lead off of BTLT’s Neptune Woods property. These signs now clearly mark what has been, and continues to be, Navy owned land.

The US Navy is currently enforcing their no trespassing regulations through signage and video monitoring because the land is undergoing further environmental study and remediation work. Trespassing on federal land is a federal crime and the Navy can pursue appropriate legal actions against violators, THEY ARE SENDING PHOTOS OF TRESPASSERS TO THE BRUNSWICK POLICE.

Please only use the trails that you know are publicly accessible – including BTLT’s Neptune Woods, and the Town of Brunswick’s Kate Furbish Preserve. Stay on trails that are included on the trail maps to be sure you are staying on publicly accessible land.

BTLT is working diligently to help assure that the land designated for use as recreation lands in the BNAS Redevelopment Plan is ultimately both accessible and safe for the community. We hope that the recreation lands on the east side of the Landing are appropriately remediated and turned over by the US Navy soon, and we will continue to actively advocate for public access on these lands and for appropriate remediation to assure that those lands are safe for the community and the natural systems that are resident on the land.

For questions or concerns about Navy lands, you can contact local Navy officials at #207-406-2290

BTLT in the News, “Fat Biking in Brunswick”

On February 10, Brunswick-Topsham Land Trust teamed up with Six Rivers NEMBA, Midcoast Conservancy, and the Merrymeeting Wheelers for a group fat tire mountain bike ride at Neptune Woods. Over 40 people attended and many ended up at the Brews for a Cause Fundraiser to benefit BTLT hosted by Flight Deck Brewing on Brunswick Landing.

Bikers before the ride.

Patrick Gabrion posted about the ride on the cycling blog, Pedal 2 Page, covering the event.

I heard one participant say, “I love these trails,” and that was the sentiment expressed by many others. Here’s my take on the four miles of loops:

* Well groomed and the abundance of trees kept icy conditions to a minimum
* Wooden bridges, not too many and short, were wide enough that they didn’t create freak-out moments
* Well marked
* Ample parking
* Despite the occasional plane taking off at the nearby airport, the wooded area was quiet and peaceful

BTLT reached out to Six Rivers NEMBA to run Sunday’s ride. In the end, the event represented a collaboration between BTLT, Six Rivers, the Merrymeeting Wheelers and the Midcoast Conservancy, which provided 20 fat bikes to loan to participants.

“The number of participants was staggering,” said Lawrence Kovacs, president of Six Rivers NEMBA.
