Explore Big Falls Preserve
The Rain or Shine Club has scheduled an outing to explore the Big Falls Preserve at 10 a.m. Thursday, Feb. 7.
The 40-acre preserve at the far end of Woodman Road, straddling the New Gloucester and Auburn line, was donated by Michael and Julie Fralich to the Royal River Conservation Trust in December. It features a scenic waterfall at the mouth of a small wading pool, creating a destination for hikers on a 1.5-mile loop trail. Snowshoes are recommended.
The parking spot is at the junction of Woodman Road and Ayer Road. For more information, contact Kyle Warren at firstname.lastname@example.org.
