 Nature/Journaling Walk: Flint Woods

Depart UMF at 9:00 return by 12:00

Trip Leader: Sue Farris (susan.farris@maine.edu)

Trip Description: Let the natural beauty of Farmington inspire you! Bring your field journals, and join us on an approximately 3-mile Nature/Journaling Walk. We’ll leave from the UMF Fitness and Recreation Center and walk about a mile to Flint Woods, where we’ll navigate the easy, well-worn, relatively level walking trail through the woods, which includes interesting highlights like the three old wells that were dug after the civil war era as part of the Farmington Village water system, and two vernal pools, where wood frogs and other amphibians abound during the wet seasons. Bring your binoculars and see how many bird species you can spot, or just relax and take in the scents and sounds of the forest around us. We’ll allow time along the way for journaling.

Trip Leader Biography: Sue is the Coordinator of Educational Assessment and Special Projects here at UMF. She has enjoyed being outdoors her entire life and comes from several generations of amateur bird-watchers and -listeners. Sue previously volunteered and worked at New Hampshire Audubon, and spends much of the spring, summer, and fall months hiking, camping, kayaking, and pursuing her bird life list.
