There are plenty of interesting things to do here in Portland to observe National Trails Day tomorrow, including hiking 10 miles through the Forest City on a guided walk with Portland Trails.
But really the big thing you should do, if in any way you can, is to head up to near Greenville to walk among some of the oldest trees in Maine. We told you about these 200-plus-year-old trees -- and about Plum Creek Timber Company's plans to cut them down this summer -- last month, in an article by Bridget Huber. Now's your chance to go with the Native Forest Network and see them for yourself.
Meet at the Monson General Store in Monson (get directions here) at 11 am on Saturday, June 7. Bring water, a snack, and sturdy shoes that are OK getting wet.
