The land between the west shore of Sebago Lake and the White Mountains offer an interesting story of ancient ocean shorelines, glaciers and multiple ice ages. Hacker’s Hill provides a terrific vantage point and signs of geological events of the past. Meet at 5:00 PM at Hacker’s Hill parking area. Please park in the “Event Parking” area to the right of the summit. Feel free to bring a picnic and stay for the sunset! (Sunset will be around 7:35 PM). Easy

A Walk Back in Time
October 5th, 10:00 AM – Noon | Narramissic Farm and Peabody Fitch Woods
LELT will lead a unique tour of one of Bridgton’s most important cultural resources, the site of the former Peabody-Fitch Farm. Once having the distinction of being the highest cultivated land in Cumberland County, a diverse forest now fills the old pastures and meadows. Now efforts are under way by LELT to conserve the 252-acre “Peabody-Fitch Woods,” which surrounds the Bridgton Historical Society’s Narramissic Farm, a wonderful museum set on the eve of the Civil War. Please meet us at Narramissic Farm at the end of Narramissic Road off of Ingalls Road in South Bridgton, and we will set out from there.
