Join us for a stunning photo journey to Greenland and the Northwest Passage. Talented photographer and co-founder of the Island Institute, Peter Ralston, will share stories and images from his summer 2016 trip to the Arctic on a sailing yacht. You will be treated to dramatic landscapes, wildlife from whales to polar bears, and Inuit villages. Peter will ponder rapid and dramatic changes in the region brought on by global warming.
Arctic Observations with Peter Ralston
Tuesday, February 7, 7 – 8:30 pm
Freeport Community Center, 53 Depot Street
Hike four local trails during September and October to enjoy an adventure out your back door.
To participate in the Freeport Trail Challenge organized by Freeport Conservation Trust visit trails at Calderwood, Quarry Woods, Pettengill Farm and Bliss Woods. Look for a sign and a container with a stamp and pad located along the trail and stamp your Passport or take a photo of yourself on site. Directions to trailheads are at the “Explore Freeport Outdoors” page of this website and they are printed on the Passport.
Collect stamps from each trail on the Trail Challenge Passport or post a “selfie” from your walk on Facebook or Instagram. Pick up a Freeport Trail Challenge Passport at Town Hall, the Historical Society or the Community Center. Or you can contact FCT to get a Passport mailed to you. FCT’s office is in the Community Center, 865-3985 x 212, firstname.lastname@example.org
Kids who get all four stamps in their Passports will get a Dairy Queen gift certificate and adults completing the Challenge will be entered into a drawing for prizes.
FCT’s partners in putting on the Freeport Trail Challenge are Town of Freeport, Freeport Historical Society and New England Forestry Foundation.
