Orris Falls Snowshoe (10:00 am - 1:00 pm)

Saturday, February 6

10 am - noon

Orris Falls Conservation Area
Thurrell Road, South Berwick

Not this year! It will be a hike, visiting Big Bump, Orris Falls and Balancing Rock.

Exploring Orris Falls in the winter provides the unique ability to trek across the Beaver marsh which feeds Orris Falls. When frozen solid, hikers are treated to open views that can’t be had the rest of the year. Expect to visit Big Bump, Orris Falls, and Baker’s Oven - some of the “Wonders of Tatnic.” As time and interest allow, the excursion may extend to Balancing Rock and Tatnic Ledges. Board president Tin Smith of Wells will lead. Snowshoes required.

Reservations required as numbers are limited. Call 207-646-3604 or email to reserve your place. It's always wise to confirm date, location and footgear recommendations. Free to members, suggested donation of $5 ($10/family) for non-members.

Beaver Dam Heath, Berwick
February 20 (snow date 21), Saturday, 10 am - noon


Beaver Dam Heath, an important wetland area in Berwick bounded by Rte. 9, Diamond Hill Road, and Old Sanford Road, is one of those places which is inaccessible in warmer months. There is a magic about this isolated, sunken area where the outside world dares not intrude.

Explore the frozen beauty of this rare Atlantic White Cedar swamp and learn more about the natural history of this unique and biologically significant region. This trek requires excellent frozen conditions - do check with us.

Meet at the Grant's Meadow parking area on Diamond Hill Road, just south of Old Sanford Road. Michael Wright will lead.

RSVP as numbers are limited. It's always wise to confirm date, location and footgear recommendations. Free to members, suggested donation of $5 ($10/family) for non-members.
