Loon Echo publishes a new Preserve and Trail Information booklet

Bridgton, ME (June 26, 2017) – Loon Echo Land Trust announced today, the publication of a new 16-page Preserve and Trail Information booklet, highlighting the recreational opportunities at each of its nine preserves. The preserves are spread across Loon Echo’s service area, encompassing towns from Harrison to Raymond and also includes: Denmark, Bridgton, Sebago, Casco, and Naples. The new booklet contains information about all of Loon Echo’s preserves and trails and will replace individual preserve information brochures. It includes maps and descriptions as well as resources for additional information.

“It’s designed to not only provide great recreational information about each preserve, but to let readers know, in one publication, about the many other opportunities that Loon Echo offers,” commented Thomas Perkins, Loon Echo’s Executive Director.

The Preserve and Trail Information booklets are available at trail-heads, the Sebago Lakes Region and Greater Bridgton Lakes Region Chambers of Commerce, the Portland Water District and local businesses, as well as at the Loon Echo office at 8 Depot Street in Bridgton, Maine.

Production of the full-color booklet was supported by Wyonegonic and Winona Camps on Moose Pond and Chalmers Insurance Group.

Preserves in the brochure include iconic Pleasant Mountain, Hacker’s Hill, Mayberry Hill, Bald Pate, Perley Pond-Northwest River, Raymond Community Forest, Sebago Headwaters and Sylvan Woods.

Loon Echo is the region’s local land trust, supported by the residents and visitors of the seven towns. The nonprofit organization protects nearly 6,700 acres of land and manages 31 miles of multi-use trails in the 320 square mile northern Sebago Lake region.

 Loon Echo works within its service area to safeguard water quality and to preserve scenic gems such as Bald Pate Mountain. LELT also provides outreach and fun educational programs for the public (visit website for calendar).  Loon Echo assists landowners to take steps to ensure future generations will benefit from the preservation of their lands.  Loon Echo Land Trust is supported by membership donations that enable it to carry out its mission and arrange funding for land conservation and stewardship endeavors.
