Dr. Dave Field, faculty emeritus at Orono, will be presenting a slide show and talk about the Appalachian Trail in Maine: its history, present, and the importance of its future as a protected corridor through the state.
Dr. Field is the author of Along Maine's Appalachian Trail.
The presentation, which will be held in Thomas Auditorium, complements the On Our Minds 2011-12 reading selection, Bill Bryson's A Walk in the Woods: Rediscovering America on the Appalachian Trail. So join us if you can on Wednesday, March 7, 11:45 am, for a virtual hike through Maine's trail history and breathtaking scenery. We'll even have trail mix for snacking along the way.
