    Nature Walk at High Lonesome

    11:00 amPakenham

    Leaders:  Art Goldsmith, along with other members of MFNC

    Meet:  At 867 Carbine Rd. Directions and more information are available at

    High Lonesome is a 200 acre property in the Pakenham Hills.  It was donated to the Mississippi Madawaska Land Trust by the late Barry Spicer, who was a member of MFNC. There we will find a network of trails through forests and meadows with streams and ponds. It lies within  the Pakenham Mountain Significant Wetland Complex and is a rich habitat for wildlife with at least 7 species at risk.  Art Goldsmith, a long-time member of MFNC is presently on the board of directors for High Lonesome and he will lead us along the trails.  There are 8km of trails but we will probably not cover the whole area, depending on the weather and the wishes of the group.  Expect to be out for at least 2h so come with water and a snack.  Wear comfortable shoes and bring binoculars, hand lens, field guides, if you have them.  Kids are very welcome!  Please register at
