Perkinstown Commons in Wells/North Berwick

The town of Wells, owner with Great Works as conservation easement holder, has developed trails and a management plan of the 280-acre preserve. Markus Diebolt of the Wells Conservation Commission and Susan Cox, former Great Works board member, will lead the walk through the fall foliage, including a visit to the portion of the preserve that was cut over a year ago for New England cottontail habitat.

Recently conserved, these 288 acres in Wells and North Berwick were formerly known as the “Granite State Gas” lands. The town of Wells now owns the property (with Great Works Regional Land Trust as conservation easement holder) and is developing a trail and management plan. In the meantime, Great Works is offering a hike along the slightly rolling woods roads of this significant parcel.

RSVP as numbers are limited. $5 donation ($10/family) suggested for non-members. For directions and to register: 207-646-3604, This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it
