Garden to Forest Tour with Three Rivers Land Trust

A public event to highlight the Sanford Community Forest Project and the future of collaborations between neighbors!

Three Rivers Land Trust and Mousam Way Land Trust invite friends and neighbors to a walk through the McKeon Reserve and to the proposed Sanford Community Forest on Sunday, July 11 at 10 AM. We will meet at the Community Garden on Blanchard Rd (look for the sign near 246 Blanchard Rd.), which is part of the McKeon Reserve. The plan of the event includes a 3/4 mile stroll through the McKeon Reserve, a pause beside the Branch River for refreshments, socializing, and a short presentation about the area’s future vision, followed by a Q&A period. After the presentation, there will be an optional half-hour excursion into the Sanford Community Forest, located just across the Rail Trail. Rides to the presentation area can be arranged for those who cannot make the hike through McKeon Reserve – please contact us at the information below for more information. In total, the event is planned to run from 10am to about 11:30, or to 12:00 with the optional Community Forest hike. 

Three Rivers has raised over 92% of the funds needed to conserve the Sanford Community Forest, and aims to raise the rest by December 2021. We thank the Mousam Way Land Trust for their invitation to create a joint event! To RSVP for the ‘Community Garden to Community Forest’ event, please get in touch with Ruth Gutman at (207) 370-4191 or, or visit our website at, where you will find a sign-up form and more information about the featured project.
