Events and Guided Walks 2017

We invite you to enjoy these special outings without charge. Phippsburg Land Trust is an all-volunteer, not-for-profit organization, and we welcome all to become members, to help support our programs and the protection of land in Phippsburg. 


Apple Tree Pruning Clinic

Saturday, April 8th, 2017 – 9am to 11am, followed by a guided walk

Location: Wilbur Preserve at Cox’s Head
Leader: Dan Dowd (PLT) and Willow Schwarz (Landcrafters)

     On Saturday, April 8, 2017 the Phippsburg Land Trust is pleased to welcome back Willow Schwarz of Landcrafters in Woolwich Maine to the Wilbur Preserve at Cox’s Head. This beautiful 10 acre preserve is on the shores of the Kennebec River and Atkins Bay.
     Willow will train those in attendance on best practices and techniques for Apple Tree Pruning and Care. Willow has been caring for and pruning apple trees for years and comes to us with an abundance of information and enthusiasm. We will have an opportunity to do some hands-on work on a grove of vintage apple trees at the Wilbur Preserve at Cox’s Head (a Phippsburg Land Trust property donated by the Rankin family). Bring hand pruners and small hand saws and wear gloves and protective clothing. The clinic will begin at 9 am and run until approximately 11 am followed by a walk led by Phippsburg Land Trust Board Member Dan Dowd to the promontory of Cox’s Head.
     Any questions please contact Dan Dowd at 207 389 2689. All ages and interested parties are welcome.
